A MAN who took issue with a Suzuki Swift has been released on a good behaviour bond.

Appearing in custody at Rockingham Magistrates Court on February 16, Rajabi Movahed Hamed pleaded guilty to criminal damage and breach of bail.

The prosecutor said Hamed attended Rockingham Suzuki on Carlston Way in Rockingham at 6.30pm on January 14.

He said Hamed began attacking a Suzuki Swift by smashing the car’s windows with his hands and feet before climbing onto the car’s roof and jumping up and down causing extensive damage.

A spokesperson from the dealership told police the car was a write-off with the damage bill totalling $17,485.

A car next to the Swift was also damaged during the attack receiving $500 worth of damage.

Magistrate Vivian Edwards asked Hamed why had attacked the car.

“It was so long ago… I agree with the police (account),” he said.

“Those days I was on the wrong medication.”

Magistrate Vivian Edwards placed him on a community release order of $1000 for the next six months.

“You must though pay $1000 for the breach of bail,” she added.
