An Aylesbury teen who skipped his train fare has been ordered to pay up hundreds of pounds after he became violent and abusive.

Jonnifer Melo, aged 18, has been given a big bill after he committed multiple offences at Aylesbury Station, in Station Road, on January 12.

The offender was caught trying to board a train without paying the fare, before he assaulted his victim and used abusive and threatening words or behaviour towards them.

Melo was charged with attempting to travel on a railway without paying a fare, common assault, and using threatening or abusive words or behaviour.

The defendant pleaded guilty to all three charges on February 1, and was sentenced by the justices at Wycombe Magistrates’ Court.

The magistrates ordered that the teenager pay £300 in compensation to his victim, but did not feel any further punishment was appropriate.
