The incident happened sometime between December 23 and 27, said prosecution advocate Chrissie Hunt.

The Courts of Justice in Douglas was also told that earlier in the month, Bergquist had tried to force his way into an Apple product store in the town.

According to the Manx Radio report of April 12, he used a fire extinguisher to attempt to break into iQ Apple on December 6 by smashing a hole in the reseller’s wall.

However, he was thwarted in his attempt to break into the Prospect Hill store.

The 45-year-old, of Belgravia Road, Onchan, was remanded in custody by High Bailiff Jayne Hughes.

He is due to appear in court again on April 27.
