A teenager has been fined for dangerous cycling after riding through the Asda superstore at Brighton Marina.
Keith Mujuru, 19, was one of a group of youngsters who were filmed cycling through the supermarket earlier this year.
Sussex Police said today (Thursday 24 October): “A teenager who was part of a group of youths on bikes who rode through the Asda store at Brighton Marina in June has been fined in court.
“Keith Mujuru, 19, unemployed, of Law Street, Southwark, London, appeared at Crawley Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday (23 October) and pleaded guilty to dangerous cycling and using threatening or abusive words or behaviour likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress.
“He was fined £440 for dangerous cycling and £440 for using threatening or abusive words or behaviour totalling £880.
“Police responded to a report of threats made by the youths at the store on the afternoon of (Sunday) 23 June.”
Detective Chief Inspector Mike Ashcroft said: “The behaviour of Mujuru and the other youths that afternoon was totally unacceptable.
“They came down from London and decided to cycle through the store, frightening customers and staff, film it and put it on social media.
“We worked closely with our colleagues in the Metropolitan Police in order to fully investigate these offences.
“We will not tolerate this type of threatening and anti-social behaviour in our community.”
