A JUDGE has imposed restrictions on the movements of a 15-year-old boy accused of injuring a man during an alleged attack in the city centre earlier this month.

The teenager was charged at the Children's Court with assault causing harm at Wexford Street on January 9.

The court heard that the alleged victim received a "laceration to his left eye, three centimetres".
