Teen remanded over riot attack
Monday 05 September 2011
A 17-year-old has appeared in court charged with breaking the jaw of a Malaysian student and robbing him of his bicycle during the London riots.
The teenager was charged with grievous bodily harm of Ashraf Rossli in Barking, east London and robbing the 20-year-old of a white cycle on August 8 during the disorder in London.
He was also charged with violent disorder at a Tesco store in Barking and theft from the store on the same day.
No plea was entered for the charges but Hannah Stephenson, defending, said the 17-year-old denied all the alleged offences.
The case of Mr Rossli received widespread publicity after footage showing the Malaysian student following the alleged assault was posted on YouTube.
:: The 17-year-old appeared alongside his 15-year-old brother at a hearing in Thames Magistrates Court in east London.
The brothers denied charges of violent disorder in Ilford and theft from a jewellers shop in Ilford, east London on August 8.
The older brother was remanded in custody by District Judge Jacqueline Comyns with the younger brother given conditional bail.
The conditions include observing a curfew with a tag.
The brothers are due to reappear at Thames Magistrates Court on September 12.
