A man has admitted breaking a screen door that belonged to a senior couple.

But Sadiq Bashir, 46, pleaded not guilty in Magistrates' Court yesterday to an assault and two charges of threatening words on the pair in Pembroke on May 6.

The court heard that Mr Bashir, from Hamilton Parish, was alleged to have assaulted Sharon Riviere, 75, and threatened her with physical injury.

He was also alleged to have threatened the life of her 79-year-old husband, Arthurton.

Crown prosecutor Shauntae Simons said that the pair were the landlords of the mother of Mr Bashir's child.

Magistrate Khamisi Tokunbo released Mr Bashir on $3,000 bail and adjourned the case until September 28.

He ordered him not to have contact with the alleged victims.
