Teenager abused schoolgirl

A teenager took advantage of a schoolgirl and sexually touched her after telling her to take a shortcut with him down an alleyway 

Luke Bradtke, 19, of Cleethorpes admitted sexual activity with a child

Prosecution told Grimsby Crown Court that Bradtke offered to walk the 14-year-old victim home after she had been drinking with friends 

They took a shortcut down an alleyway in Grimsby at night where he tried to kiss and grope her. She refused to commit a sexual act on him but we went onto touch her sexually

He was interrupted by a member of the public, and the girl managed to leave the scene

Judge Mark Bury told him: “This is an offence that is too serious to be dealt with in any other way than a custodial sentence”

Bradtke was locked up for six months and was ordered to register as a sex offender for seven years

He was also handed a seven year restraining order banning him from contacting the girl
