POLICE reinforcements drafted into Inverclyde to help local officers tackle unruly young people arrested a 15-year-old boy.
The teenager was detained for alleged possession of a brick and engaging in anti-social behaviour on Binnie Street on Friday evening.
He was spotted by force reserve officers assisting Inverclyde Police over the weekend with additional patrols because of complaints about disturbances involving groups of young people.
Area commander Chief Inspector Paul Cameron said: “Safeguarding young people in Inverclyde is my absolute priority.
“Police are not wishing to criminalise our young people however this kind of behaviour is unacceptable and we will take robust action against those involved.
“I appeal to all parents to know where their children are. Together we can prevent any young person obtaining a criminal record.”
