A GOBBY racist teenager admitted abusing a shop owner and her family, and assaults.

The 15-year-old girl, who cannot be identified for legal reasons, admitted four offences at Worthing Youth Court.

It included racist abuse against a shop owner in Rowlands Road on April 23.

She was convicted for “intimidating behaviour” towards a woman in Byron Road in June, then days later attacked a12-year-old girl on the beach.

The 12-year-old victim suffered head injuries.

Then last month she attacked a police officer when under arrest.

She was sentenced to a Youth Referral Order for ten months. The court also ordered her to pay £200 in compensation to the 12-year-old girl, while her mother must attend the Youth Offender Panel with the girl.

Police Sergeant Peter Allan said: “I hope the girl uses the professional input during the period of the order to good use, and that she reflects on her behaviour, and its impact on those around her.”
