Girl caught carrying knife threatened to 'kill in vengeance'

A TEENAGER who was carrying a knife when she told police she was going to the park to kill someone has been sentenced for a host of offences.

Haley Rose Moore - who had no prior criminal history - fronted Warwick Magistrates Court yesterday and pleaded guilty to seven criminal offences.

In the most serious offence, the 17-year-old was found by police while ranting loudly outside her Warwick home on the evening of November 7.

The teenager's uncle handed police a knife upon their arrival, telling them his niece was going to "stab someone".

The court heard Moore told police she was on her way to Leslie Park to "kill" someone who had insulted one of her family members.

She was handcuffed by police because she was yelling loudly and throwing her arms around aggressively.

Her rage did not subside when she was placed in the back of a police vehicle and she proceeded to bang her head against the car's protective screen.

She also sought vengeance for a family member when she verbally abused and threatened two women and a child in a supermarket on November 11.

Moore said her attack was against a girl who had been bullying her cousin at school.

While she was at the supermarket, Moore also found the time to steal herself some lollies.

The 17-year-old also pleaded guilty to stealing three fishing rods and a tackle box from her parents' property.

Magistrate Roger Stark scolded Moore on the severity of her actions.

"This is pretty serious stuff though, isn't it, when you've got a knife in a public place, saying you're going to kill someone?" he said.

Moore looked less than impressed when Mr Stark sentenced her to 12 months of probation.

No conviction was recorded against her.
