Two teenagers aged 13- and 14-years-old, who lured a toddler away from a shop, have been given a jail sentence of three years and three months each.


Explaining that the girls had “evil intent”, Mr Justice Globe told the court that neither had “explained to [his] satisfaction [their] actions on the day in question.”



Adding that the toddler was going to be harmed, he gave them their three year sentence before refusing a request for the girls to be named publicly.


According to the Sun, the girls had waited for hours in a Primark in Newcastle waiting to abduct a child, and had changed the youngster’s hair and used sweets to get her onto the Metro.


They were found 90 minutes later and, thankfully, the toddler was returned to her mother unharmed.



The judge, who sat on the James Bulger’s trail according to the publication, saw CCTV footage of the two girls trying to take the toddler away, which Sarah Barlow prosecuting described as “quite co-ordinated”.
