A YOUTH who took part in a frightening attack on a young family has been dealt with by a court.
The boy, who was 16 at the time of the attack but is now 17 and cannot be named for legal reasons, risks being jailed if he commits any anti-social acts on the Wilton Estate at Batley or enters an exclusion zone.
An anti-social behaviour injunction was made against him at Dewsbury County Court.
The family who were attacked were driving to their new home on the estate when their car was attacked by a gang of 30 young people.
The mother, who cannot be named, said: "They kept trying to open the car doors and even opened the door of my two-year-old son in the back.
"It was very frightening for me and my children."
Her husband said: "I got the doors shut and locked them, but they trapped my arm and my wife's."
Kirklees Council neighbourhood service manager Robert Scott said: "We will not tolerate this kind of behaviour.
"We will also be looking at the behaviour of the other people involved in the attack to see what action can be taken through Dewsbury County Court."
Darren Hackett, council neighbourhood housing harassment officer, said: "We will be doing all we can to stop anti-social behaviour in the Wilton area, particularly racially-motivated behaviour that blights the lives of all in the community.
"We will tackle anti-social or racist behaviour wherever it occurs and we are working with the police and other agencies to deal with it."
