He alleged the man bashed down the door with a sledgehammer when he was refused.

He allegedly threatened the victim before police arrived and detained him.

Officers charged the Clarkson man with threats to harm and aggravated burglary for his alleged forced entry into the home.

He faced Joondalup Magistrates Court on February 2 and was released on bail to reappear on March 2.
