A TEENAGER who robbed a taxi driver has been electronically tagged.

The 16-year-old from Bolton, who cannot be named for legal reasons, robbed his victim of a PDA data system, money bag, debit cards and £58 on the evening of January 1.

He then went on to try and use one of the stolen bank cards to buy goods in Wigan the same day.

At Wigan Magistrates’ Court he pleaded guilty to committing the offences and was sentenced to a youth rehabilitation order with intensive supervision for 91 days.

He has also been electronically tagged and is subject to a 9pm to 7am curfew for three months and must pay his victim £100 in compensation.

The boy must also pay a £21 victim surcharge.
