A TEENAGER who carried out a terrifying gun raid on a Huddersfield newsagents when he was just 15 has been locked for three years up by a crown court judge.
Shopkeeper Dinesh Joshi, who is in his 50's, and his elderly mother both chased the teenager out of their shop in Swan Lane, Lockwood, after he came in wearing a balaclava mask and carrying what they thought was a knife.
Bradford Crown Court heard today how it was only when the shop's CCTV footage was viewed that it was realised that the boy had been carrying an imitation handgun.
The boy took off his balaclava outside the premises following the raid last November and the court heard that he was traced because Mr Joshi vaguely knew the teenager's mother.
