Teenager Locked Up After Chasing Love Rival

Teenager locked up Teenager locked up


A TEENAGER has been locked up for chasing her love rival down the street with a carving knife.

The 17-year-old girl's simmering anger at another woman who started a relationship with her ex-boyfriend boiled over, Barnsley Youth Court was told.

The Goldthorpe girl, who was sent into detention for eight months, snapped when her former boyfriend's new partner poked her in the eye, said Sean Fritchley, defending.

He said: "The 17-year-old was in relationship with a man. They broke up and the ex-boyfriend and the victim got together.

"Anger and frustration had simmered under the surface for some time. There was a row which escalated and the defendant was poked in the eye.

"The defendant picked up the carving knife in a temper and fully accepts her guilt."

The court was told the 17-year-old also assaulted a pregnant woman during the incident.

District Judge John Foster said: "You hardly need me to underline that your behaviour was serious.

"You lost your temper during an argument with the other woman and assaulted her.

"You took a dangerous weapon and chased the woman with it with intent to cause her serious harm or worse. You also assaulted a pregnant woman."

The girl admitted possessing an offensive weapon and two assaults.

I don't think we need to know more than that a girl chased someone with a carving knife. Anyone who behaves in such an animalistic fashion should be put in a cage.
