Two men were sentenced by the Magistrate’ Court for assaulting a man and damaging his car yesterday.

Magistrate Pengiran Hazirah binti Pengiran Haji Mohd Yusof sentenced Abdul Rahim bin Abdul Rahman, 24, to 10 months’ imprisonment and one stroke of the cane, while Awangku Mohammad Eaddyzul Amirzan Firdaus bin Pengiran Abdul Wahap, 21, received four months in prison.

Prosecutor Hajah ‘Adzimah Mukarramah binti Haji Salleh stated that both were on the same shift as security guards for a company at 4.30am on September 23, when Abdul Rahim confided that his wife was having an affair with another man. They contacted the victim by phone, to set up a meeting at a car park in Kiarong.

At 6pm on the same day, they met with the victim as arranged and began to interrogate him in an aggressive manner. After forcibly taking his phone and checking it, they found photos of Abdul Rahim’s wife in compromising poses with the victim.

The pair immediately set upon the victim, with Abdul Rahim hitting him repeatedly on the head and back with a steel rod.

He was then attacked by Awangku Mohd Eaddzul, who slapped, kicked and punched him. Awangku Mohammad Eaddyzul also struck the victim’s car repeatedly.
