Tracking device ordered for tram attack culprit

The Capital Court has ordered criminal supervision for four months for a man who hurled bottles and racist abuse at three Nigerians on a tram last Saturday.

The man has no criminal record, but regularly consumes large quantities of alcohol, is under psychiatric care and takes medication, which may have caused him to become violent.

As there is a danger that he might repeat his act the court ordered the culprit to wear a tracking device.
