The CBO runs for two years starting with immediate effect. His order came with a number of conditions which means he must not:
- have contact with five named individuals
- enter any part of Mill Green Road, off London Road, Mitcham
- board or ride any Transport for London bus unless accompanied by a parent or youth offending officer, except on routes 466, 127, 157 and 151.
The CBO follows the youth's conviction at Croydon Youth Court on Wednesday, 5 August after he admitted racially aggravated behaviour against a mixed race 16-year-old boy who was known to him and has severe learning difficulties.
The youth abused the teenager on an S1 bus in Sutton in February 2015 by blocking his exit, jabbing him in the leg with a screwdriver, threatening him in the face with a toy gun and punching him on the arm.
He also admitted two offences of criminal damage the previous month when he threw eggs at a lounge window in Mill Green Road shouting racial abuse at residents inside the address, and broke a pane of glass at another property in the street a week later.
The CBO was the work of Sutton's Anti-Social Behaviour Unit - a joint team of council and police officers based at Sutton Police station. The unit is managed by Sutton Council and the Met Police and additionally funded by Sutton Housing Partnership.
