Grimsby brick charge boy held in custody

A teenager has been remanded in custody by magistrates after a four-year-old girl was hit in the face by a brick thrown through a van window.

The girl's father, 23, had confronted a group of youths for allegedly kicking a ball at his vehicle on Hildyard Street, Grimsby, on Thursday.

The brick came through a window, hitting Jersey-Lou Perry in the face.

The 17-year-old boy will next appear at Grimsby Magistrates' Court on Wednesday charged with attempted wounding.
