A local man who pleaded guilty to several charges in the Magistrate’s Court on Thursday will learn his fate on September 24, 2019.

Abdul Akbar @ Borhan bin Haji Dunglah, 36, who has criminal records relating to theft and misuse of drugs, trespassed into a Dato’s residence in Kampong Wasan with the intention to annoy the 70-year-old occupant and committed mischief by causing damage to the property twice.

The first incident was on September 15, 2019 when the defendant trespassed and broke three glass window panels, three panels of a wooden fence of the house and three outdoor fence lights. The second time was when the defendant trespassed with the intention to annoy the occupant and damaged a side mirror to the occupant’s vehicle parked in the garage on September 17, 2019.

Deputy Public Prosecutor Raihan Nabilah binti Ahmad Ghazali revealed to Magistrate Dewi Norlelawati binti Haji Abdul Hamid that the defendant was motivated by anger and armed with a metal pole on both occasions, shouting the occupant’s name to annoy him.

The house occupant was alarmed by the defendant’s actions on both occasions and hid in his house.
