A 17-year-old boy has been charged with 11 counts of criminal damage and three counts of breaching a criminal behaviour order.
The charge is related to an incident in Whittlesey on Friday August 4.
He was released on bail to appear at Huntingdon Youth Court on Wednesday September 6, with conditions banning him from Whittlesey town centre and imposing a curfew requiring him to remain in his home between 7pm and 7am.
A police spokesman said: “It’s come to our attention that members of the public have been discussing the name of a youth in connection with the arrest made for antisocial behaviour offences.
“We would like to remind the public that if a youth (anyone under 18) has committed a crime or is accused of a crime they are legally entitled to anonymity unless a court orders otherwise.
