A 28-year-old local man in the Magistrate’s Court yesterday denied three charges of theft, assault and mischief.

DPP Sabrina binti Haji Mahmud said that investigations, conducted by Muara Police Station, found that Muhammad Rabani Safwan Shah @ Abdul Qayum bin Haji Siasgar allegedly stole from a mini mart in Kampong Mentiri on May 5.

Following his arrest, further investigations revealed that he had caused hurt to a 29-year-old man and committed mischief to the man’s car sometime in February.

Magistrate Hajah Dewi Norlelawati binti Haji Abdul Hamid adjourned the case to June 3, for trial dates to be fixed.
