A 16-year-old youth has been remanded in custody until a suitable address can be found for what was described in court an incident 'aggravated by racial hatred.' The youth was charged with criminal damage to food in a city centre shop, assault on the shop keeper, three assaults on police and one charge of resisting police that were said to have occurred on June 6. The youth admitted all the charges but the court was told that as yet there was no suitable address for him. District Judge Barney McElholm remanded the youth in custody but granted hi bail once an address could be found. The bail conditions were to observe a curfew, wear a tag, abstain from alcohol and drugs, have no contact with the alleged injured party and stay out of Foyle Street in Derry. He will appear again on July 3.
