Girl, 15, who shoved seven-month-old baby into path of bus is sent on anger management course - 4th Apr 2011

A girl tearaway has been sent on an anger management course after she shoved a seven-month-old baby into a bus lane.

The 15-year-old was convicted of causing actual bodily harm to the baby, after magistrates decided her reckless and racially motivated assault caused him to be flung from his sister's grasp in the attack near West Croydon bus station, in south London.

The girl, whose identity is protected by law, was ordered to attend a year of anger management and 'victim empathy' sessions to help her understand the consequences of her actions.

The traumatised family of the baby relocated to Mauritius to escape the devastation the attack had caused on their lives, Croydon Youth Court heard.

The girl and a friend, also 15, had already subjected a 13-year-old girl in the family to shouts of 'Paki' in Primark, North End before assaulting her and her mother in the street last July.
