In this incidence, the young man who is involved in the antisocial behaviour exhibit problems of social exclusion and other problems. Although he has social problems he is in a bad company which may be influencing him to engage in crimes. Social exclusion can make individual to start engaging in crimes. According to social labelling theory self-identity and behaviour of an individual is influenced by the way that person is labelled by the society and the way that individual is described by the member of the society. Although sub-cultural theory assumer that there are groups or individual in the society that have characters that make them prone to criminal activities, the society also plays big role in constructing the criminal. (Marek 2004, p. 32)
Labelling theory shows that if individual are labelled as criminals by the society, they are likely to engage in crimes. If the individual is labelled as a good person, one is likely to reciprocate in the same way. (Phelan and Bruce 1999, p. 90)
According to the broken window theory, it is easier to solve small problems instead of waiting until the time they grow to be big problems which cannot be easily solved.

This means that any policy that can be developed to deal with the rate of crime in the society will be solved if we interdict them early before
