Stenhousemuir teen attacked youngster and stole motorbike
A teenager assaulted another youngster and took his motorcycle before heading off on a high speed joyride through the centre of Stenhousemuir.
The 17-year-old – who cannot be named for legal reasons – appeared at Falkirk Sheriff Court last Thursday having pleaded guilty to assaulting a 16-year-old boy and robbing him of his motorcycle in the car park of Farmfoods, Hallam Road, Stenhousemuir on April 24.
He then proceeded to commit a number of road traffic offences, including travelling dangerously at excessive speed, failing to stop for police, riding without a licence or insurance and without a helmet.
The court heard the teenager, who was 16 when he committed the offences, had been placed on a structured deferred sentence on July 28.
Sheriff Craig Harris placed the teenager, who comes from Stenhousemuir, on a further structured deferred sentence for three months, continuing his interim driving ban until February 17, 2022.
