TWO 16-year-old youths have appeared in court following attacks on two younger boys in Inverkeithing.

The two youths, one from Inverkeithing and the other from Dalgety Bay, cannot be named for legal reasons.

At Dunfermline Sheriff Court, they admitted that on September 17, at Hillend Road, Inverkeithing, they assaulted a boy then aged 15 by kicking him on the head and body repeatedly to his injury.

The Inverkeithing youth also admitted that he assaulted another 15-year-old boy by seizing him by the neck and striking him on the head with his knee, to his injury.

Sheriff Alison Michie deferred sentence until October 27 for good behaviour.
