Two teenage boys found guilty of violent disorder at DART station
They cannot be named because they are minors.
Two male youths have been found guilty of a violent disorder at a Dublin DART station.
In April 2021, a group of teenagers were harassing young girls at the station.
CCTV footage shows the boys intimidating and assaulting the girl and her friends.
A young girl fell between the train and the platform after one member lunged at her with his bike.
Luckily, her friends and staff managed to help the girl up.
She may not have suffered severe injuries, but the young girl was extremely shaken and distressed.
It is believed that 10 to 15 youths were causing disruptions on the DART on the day of the incident.
Security ordered them off the train, but they continued to hang around the station.
Two teens have been found guilty of the incident.
They cannot be identified publicly because they are minors.
They were both charged with violent disorder, but a third member is currently facing assault charges.
His case will now be held at the Circuit Court.
He also cannot be named because he is a minor.
Judge Paul Kelly noted that neither of the boys had any prior convictions.
He has adjourned sentencing the youths for preparation of probation reports.
Judge Kelly has ordered both boys to obey their bail conditions.
The case will resume in June.
