A man has appeared in court accused of repeatedly throwing a bike at a property and assaulting a police officer by running at her holding a traffic sign.
Alan Rachwal, 27, of no fixed abode, appeared in private at Dundee Sheriff Court before Sheriff Derek Reekie on a petition.
Rachwal appeared on a total of eight charges.
He is accused of having stolen items from homes, of having thrown a bicycle at a window during a breach of the peace and of housebreaking with intent to steal.
Rachwal is alleged to have, on June 15, been found in the curtilage of two properties on Blaikies Mews in circumstances whereby it may be inferred he intended to commit theft there.
He is also accused of having stolen keys, two watches and a wallet containing bank cards and a driving licence at a property on Blaikies Mews on the same date.
He is also alleged to have, on the same date, at a property in Thornbank Court, broken into a house occupied by Kenneth Crooks with intent to steal.
Rachwal is also accused of having broken into a room occupied by Alastair Christie at Transform, Soapworks Lane, with intent to steal.
Prosecutors further allege that, at the same place on the same date, he behaved in a threatening or abusive manner, repeatedly threw a bicycle at the property and at a window there and in close proximity to members of staff, pulled open a secure entry door whilst shouting and swearing at staff members, banged on a locked shutter door with his fists and a pair of pliers and repeatedly demanded entry to the premises, having been informed he was not welcome there.
Rachwal is further accused of wilfully or recklessly destroying or damaging property at Transform, Soapwork Lane, on the same date, repeatedly striking a CCTV camera with a pair of pliers, causing damage.
He is also accused of, at Constitution Road, assaulting PC Victoria Taylor by running at her while holding a traffic sign.
Rachwal made no plea and was fully committed for trial.
He was remanded in custody meantime.
