Teenagers in court on Leeds rail station attack charges

Have your say

Two teenagers have been charged over an alleged homophobic attack at Leeds railway station.

A 21-year-old man, from Leeds, contacted police after he was abused by a group in McDonald’s before being chased outside and attacked and punched in the taxi rank outside the station on July 5.

He suffered facial injuries in the incident.

An appeal by British Transport Police led to the arrest of two youths.

A 17-year-old boy, from Stockton upon Tees, appeared at Leeds Magistrates’ Court today (Sept 17) accused of common assault.

A 16-year-old, from Port Talbot, Wales, is due to face court on the same charge later this month.
