Man jailed two months for criminal intimidation

Hakim Hayat

A man was sentenced to two months’ imprisonment on Tuesday, after the Magistrate’s Court found him guilty of pointing a knife at another motorist during a road rage dispute.

The altercation happened at the traffic junction of Jalan Utama Berakas, in January this year.

Police said that Awangku Muhd Isra bin Pengiran Haji Hidup, 26, pulled out a knife from his car and pointed it at the victim. Awangku Muhd Isra was later arrested and charged with criminal intimidation.

The incident has prompted the Royal Brunei Police Force to remind motorists to stay calm and courteous while driving, to avoid potential road rage situations.
