Sending a message to estate's hoodlums

PUBLISHED: 20:59 09 August 2002 | UPDATED: 12:27 03 March 2010

THE IPSWICH estate plagued by the two yobs involved in yesterday's controversial court case is riddled with youth crime.

But a senior Suffolk policeman hopes such a high-profile case will send out a message that the young thugs can expect to be punished for their criminal acts.

THE IPSWICH estate plagued by the two yobs involved in yesterday's controversial court case is riddled with youth crime.

But a senior Suffolk policeman hopes such a high-profile case will send out a message that the young thugs can expect to be punished for their criminal acts.

Inspector Andy Solomon said: "This is a problematic area of the town where most of our detected offences are committed by youths under the age of 18."

Insp Solomon made it clear other yobs in the area would also be brought before the courts and punished.

He said: "The fact that these two young men have been brought before the court and punished for a series of very nasty offences should send out a strong signal.

"The police and courts will deal with their criminal and anti-social behaviour."
