Teenager jailed for mobile phone theft and assault on girls near Castle Vale canal

A 16 year-old boy who put a girl in a headlock and tightened his arm around her neck to force her to hand over her mobile phone has been jailed for 12 months. The boy cannot be named for legal reasons.
He targeted his victims, two girls aged 13 and 14, as they walked along the canal towpath just off Kingsbury Road near Castle Vale at around 5pm on 11th May. The boy ran away but after police spoke to the victims he was later arrested and charged. He initially denied the offence but later pleaded guilty and was sentenced this week by Birmingham Magistrates.
