Glasgow Sheriff Court heard how the 16-year-old called officers and told them she was carrying a blade.
A 16-year-old girl who was detained for a series of knife offences told Glasgow Sheriff Court she making a ‘cry for help’.
The court heard yesterday how the girl, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was first arrested for carrying a knife in a park after one of her friends alerted police.
She also admitted having blades on another two separate occasions, pleading guilty to a total of four offences.
The first incident took place on June 22 2016 on parkland near Auchinlea Road, Easterhouse.
Procurator fiscal depute Miss O’Donnell told the court that the youth was with friends at 5.30 pm. The female told her friend she had a ‘folding knife’ in her sock and her friend called the police.
When officers arrived at 6.30 pm the accused ran off but was detained and a search was carried out.
It wasn’t until she was taken back to secure accommodation that officers found what was described in court as a ‘green folding knife’ hidden under the front strap of her bra.
The second incident took place on October 14, last year, at Osborne Street in Glasgow city centre. On that occasion the youth called the police herself at 7.50pm and told them she had a knife.
When two officers arrived and approached her she told them to ‘f**k right off.’ In the ensuing search they found a small grey handled knife in her trouser pocket.
Then, on November 19, she called 999 from the Gallowgate and told the operator she had a knife.
Sheriff Daniel Scullion continued the case so he could obtain a criminal justice social work report. He also asked that a children’s hearing to take place before he sentences the youth next month.
