Heavy bail terms for teens accused of wounding toddler
Two teenage boys accused of fracturing a toddler’s leg are out on bail with extensive restrictions to their freedom.
A 16-year-old and a 15-year-old, who appeared at Haringey Magistrates Court yesterday, have been placed under a strict curfew, which means they must be at their separate home addresses between 7pm and 7am each night.
They have each been fitted with an electronic tag which monitors their location and ensures they are living and sleeping at their home addresses.
The pair are also not allowed to contact each other, or any witnesses or member of the prosecution, until the conditional bail conditions are lifted.
The two teenagers are also forced to keep all their appointments with the Youth Offending Team in order to keep their freedom.
The 16-year-old boy and 15-year-old boy are accused of causing grievous bodily harm to a three-year-old boy in an attack which left him with a fractured leg.
The pair are also accused of trying to rob his 20-year-old mother of her handbag in the incident in Philip Lane, Tottenham on March 25.
The two boys, who cannot be named for legal reasons, will return to Haringey Magistrates Court on May 10 where their case is expected to be transferred to Wood Green Crown Court in Lordship Lane.
The 15-year-old boy is also accused of assaulting a police community support officer in the same incident.
