Teenagers admit harassing neighbours in Lowestoft
TWO teenage boys face being given an anti social behaviour order after they admitted harassing their neighbours in central Lowestoft over the course of two months.
The 14-year-old and 15-year-old pleaded guilty at Lowestoft Magistrates' Court on Wednesday to harassment by causing alarm between October and November last year.
Corinne Gook-Hurren, prosecuting, said the offences happened between October 11 and November 26 and involved one set of neighbours. Because of the guilty pleas, an antisocial behaviour order will be applied for when the youths are sentenced, the court heard.
The 15-year-old also admitted causing criminal damage to another neighbour's window on November 7.
He did not enter a plea on three separate charges: one of using threatening behaviour, two of assault and one of assaulting a police officer.

The 14-year-old also admitted one assault and denied separate charges of assault and threatening behaviour.
The boys, who cannot be named for legal reasons, were bailed to reappear before magistrates on Wednesday when they could be sentenced for the harassment charges.
