Runaway teen is granted bail

A Dublin youth who repeatedly absconded from a children's home and allegedly attacked a care worker has been readmitted to bail.

The 15-year-old is facing charges at Dublin Children's Court for criminal damage and theft offences, most of which are alleged to have happened in his care home.

He had his bail revoked and spent a week in custody on remand, but the Child and Family Agency has provided him with a new care home. He was granted bail by Judge John O'Connor, who ordered him to reside at the facility.
