Teen jailed for assaulting secure unit staff

A teenager who assaulted two members of staff at a secure unit has been jailed for 14 weeks.

Taylor Murphy of Derby Road in Douglas appeared before magistrates at Douglas Courthouse.

The 18-year-old admitted two assaults and criminal damage following an incident at Cronk Sollysh on February 28.

Murphy punched a member of staff and attacked another member of staff who tried to intervene - the next day he smashed a television.

Murphy will serve his jail term alongside a custodial sentence he's serving for drugs offences.
