These forms are handed to people suspected of being involved in antisocial behaviour and police review them to see if further action is required, including potential home visits by officers.
No further incidents were reported after the lads were taken home shortly after 6pm that night.
The boys are also to attend the police station to be placed on Acceptable Behaviour Contracts (ABCs) by Hartlepool’s Community Safety Team – a partnership of police, local authority and fire brigade.
