A third boy has been charged with violent disorder following an incident that occurred at Howth Junction train station back in April where a 17-year-old girl fell from one of the platforms and in between a DART.
CCTV footage shows people running for the DART before it departs the station, however, a group of youths were exhibiting threatening and intimidating behaviour at the people who were running.
One teenager ran past the group when of the youths pretend to throw his bike at her while another used intimidating body language.
As a result, the teenage girl tripped and fell from the platform.
She was assisted back onto the platform by her friends and staff and escaped the incident with minor injuries.
Two boys aged 16 and 17 have already been arrested and charged with violent disorder.
They appeared before Dublin Children’s Court on Tuesday and were granted bail under strict conditions.
The third boy, aged 17, was arrested today and charged with violent disorder at the station.
He appeared before Dublin Children’s Court and was ordered to obey bail conditions. He was ordered by Judge Paul Kelly to have no contact with the girl, her family or the co-defendants.
However, unlike the other boys, he was not barred from all DART stations. The boy along with the other defendants will face a preliminary hearing next month to consider their trial venue.
