Teen slapped pal over mobile

A TEENAGER who borrowed another youth's mobile phone told him to "f**k off" and threatened to give him a slap when he asked for it back, a court heard.

Steven Stokes (18) claimed he never intended to use force against the other young man.

The defendant, of Cloonlara Road in Finglas, admitted before Blanchardstown District Court to a charge of robbery.

The charge will be struck out if Stokes donated €100 to the Capuchin Day Centre. The court heard the teenager had never been in trouble before.
