Sailors too drunk to remember being assaulted by 13-year-old girl
TWO SAILORS who were so drunk they could not remember being beaten up in the street had been set upon by two 13-year-old girls, Truro Youth Court heard.
One was hit with such force he banged his head on a shopfront window and fell to the ground.
In court, one girl from Helston, who cannot be named for legal reasons, pleaded guilty to two offences of assault.
The other girl, said Graham Calderwood, for the Crown Prosecution Service, had been given a reprimand.

Mr Calderwood said at 1.10am on January 27 in Coinagehall Street, Helston, the midshipman and lieutenant were struck after an argument with the girls. Neither remembered much of what happened as they had both had a lot to drink. One suffered a swollen face and scratches and the other had a grazed knee and tenderness to the back of his head.
The girl had a previous reprimand and warning for violence.
Paul Simons, her solicitor, said the sailors swore at the girls, adding: "There was some provocation from these two much larger men."
The teenager said she was appalled by seeing her actions on CCTV, adding: "I cannot believe it happened."
The magistrates added a further four months to an existing referral order for her, saying they felt there had been some provocation from the sailors.
