What word is most commonly used?  I've seen "loubarb" and "voyous" but maybe these are outdated.  merci d'avance

you may say:  jeune délinquant, un jeune voyou, (hooligan)

loubard/loulou is a bit old fashioned now

A few years ago a politian used the word sauvageon


You may also use "délinquant (juvénile)" or "racaille" (less polite).

"Sauvageon" is imo kind of funny, it's something you'd say to a child.
