 A 14-year-old boy has been electronically tagged and banned from leaving his home between 9pm and 7am. 

It followed a stepping up of sanctions against the youth who admitted breaching an earlier criminal behaviour order.  

He appeared before a youth court where he also pleaded guilty to harassment over a five month-period.  

The teenager from Soham, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was given an electronic tag and issued with a curfew following the offence.  

A spokesperson for Cambridgeshire police said: “A teenager has been given an electronic tag and issued with a curfew not to leave his home between 9pm and 7am for three months.   

“The boy pleaded guilty to harassment between August 2020 and January 2021 and breaching his criminal behaviour order.”  

The spokesperson added: “We are working with partner agencies to ensure this child is given the support he needs to change his behaviour and become a valued member of the East Cambridgeshire community.”
