Two teenagers threatened to attack a young man with a dog lead in Greenhead Park.
Now both have been ordered to perform unpaid work for their behaviour.
Sentencing Ashley Needham, 19 and Jade Todd, 18, at Leeds Crown Court Recorder Richard Woolfall said it was clear they were immature.
“I am quite satisfied that afternoon neither of you appreciated just how serious this incident was that you were involving yourself in.”
Jonathan Sharp prosecuting said their victim, Alexander Bailey had previously been in a relationship with Todd which had ended last year.
On July 24 he was skateboarding in the park when he saw Needham and Todd who tried to attract his attention. He tried to ignore them but heard Needham shouting: “If you don’t stop I’ll batter you.”
Needham then complained that Mr Bailey owed Todd some money and when he said he did not have any he was told to hand over his skateboard.
He initially refused but saw Needham had a dog lead wrapped round his hand and feeling scared did what he was told. He was then ordered to take his shoes off but refused and Todd said “That’s enough.”
Mr Sharp said Needham continued to press demanding Mr Bailey get £200 from his father. Mr Bailey then walked away to leave the park but Needham caught up to him and asked for his wallet.
The complainant showed him the wallet was empty and Needham then asked for his phone instead which he handed over before walking off.
Mr Sharp told the court that the pair had picked the wrong target because Bailey was the son of a policeman and immediately went to the police station to report what had happened.
As a result his father contacted Todd who through a third party arranged the return of the phone and skateboard.
Elyas Patel for Needham said he accepted it was “an unsavoury episode” which in his eyes was debt recovery”. It was never intended to keep the property long and the complainant had it back within minutes.
The court heard Todd is now studying to be a nurse.
Needham of Holme Park Court, Berry Brow was ordered to do 150 hours' unpaid work. Todd of Moorbottom Road, Honley, was ordered to do 100 hours unpaid work. Both admitted affray.
