KUALA LUMPUR: An unemployed man was charged in the Sessions Court here with rampaging a convenience store while attempting to rob the cashier.
Jasman Abdul Ajeez, 34, claimed trial to attempting to rob convenience store employee Tika Kattel, a Myanmar national.
Jasman was also slapped with a second charge of smashing a LCD TV monitor and damaging the cashier monitor, causing RM4,300 in losses.
Both alleged offences occurred at the KK Supermart and Store on Jalan San Peng, Pudu here at 5.08am on July 17.
He faces up to seven years prison and a fine, under Section 393 of the Penal Code for attempted robbery, and up to two more years prison, if convicted of mischief, under Section 427.
DPP Nor Aizam Aizza Zamran urged the court not to offer bail, as it was a violent non-bailable offence.
Jasman plead for a low bail, saying his father was willing to act as his surety.
Judge Zanol Rashid Hussain fixed bail at RM10,000 with one surety and set August 27 for mention.
