PSNI plea to parents after boy arrested

By Cate McCurry

Police have called on parents to keep a closer eye on their children after a 15-year-old boy was arrested for anti-social behaviour.

Officers say that they responded to reports of anti-social behaviour on Thursday night in three locations across east Belfast - Mountpottinger Road, Strand Walk and Ballymacarrett.

Chief Inspector David Moore said: "Local officers responded to reports of young people gathering in a number of locations across east Belfast on Thursday and arrested a 15-year-old male.

"We will continue to monitor reports of anti-social behaviour and respond appropriately, including focusing patrols in certain areas at particular times.

"I would also like to remind young people there are consequences when you get involved in this type of behaviour.

"What might seem like fooling about can often result in a criminal record, which can affect travel, education and employment opportunities in the future."
