A 16-year-old girl has been punished for taking part in trashing her sister’s ex-boyfriend’s cars, after cutting wires, piercing tyres and smashing windows of multiple vehicles.

It comes a week after her older sister was given a youth community-based order for the same rampage.

At 3am on December 11, 2022, the two sisters approached the family home of the older sister’s ex-boyfriend in Mt Tarcoola, and began their plan by opening a window, placing a hose inside one of the rooms, and releasing it to flood the room.

They then cut wires of one car, rendering it undriveable, pierced the tyres of another car, and threw a chair at another car, cracking its window.

Magistrate Angus Hockton noted the destruction, particularly the sabotage of the wires, was quite “methodical”.

The 16-year-old was also in Geraldton Children’s Court on June 6 for sentencing for an assault against a teenage girl, her ex-boyfriend’s girlfriend, in Beaconsfield near Fremantle.

The 16-year-old pushed the victim, punched her repeatedly and grabbed her by the hair in that assault.

Her older sister was given a four-month youth community-based order for criminal damage, but Mr Hockton decided the order should be increased to five months for the 16-year-old to account for the assault.
