Glass in toddler’s face

By staff reporter in Local People

A two-year-old boy got fragments of glass embedded in his cheek when two teens attacked his father’s car in Gloucester and smashed the windows, a court heard last week.

Harry Wells, 19, of Deans Way, Gloucester, and Tyreke Edwards, 18, of Burns Avenue, Podsmead, pleaded guilty at Gloucester Crown Court to criminally damaging a Vauxhall Astra owned by Scott Maclean on August 2 last year.

The prosecution case is that an argument broke out between the teens and Mr Maclean in Alvin Street and Wells smashed one of the windows with his fist while Edwards got a shovel from their van and used it to smash the driver’s side window.

The boy was injured by the flying glass and Mr Maclean suffered a small headwound.

Recorder Richard Smith QC bailed the teenagers for pre-sentence reports. They will be sentenced on June 6th.
