Dobie Dell window smashed by bottle



AN argument between a 17-year-old Grafton male and his female companion, allegedly led him to throw a beer bottle through the window at Dobie Dell Takeaway Shop at 8:15pm on Thursday.

Proprietor of the Prince Street business, Trevor Jones, said it was the fourth or fifth time windows had been smashed.

"There was a big row around the phone box and this guy was very upset, and was brandishing a bottle of beer," he said.

Mr Jones blamed the incident on the age of the boy and said that because he was under 21 his brain hadn't fully developed.

"Until someone is 21 their brain wires are not fully insulated and they don't understand judgments properly," he said.

Mr Jones was also concerned about the security of businesses on Prince St, but had resolved to stay at the same location.

The youth allegedly handed himself into the Grafton Police and has promised to pay Mr Jones for the damage.
