A Dundee man is facing charges of threatening or abusive behaviour, causing damage and theft.
Paul Duffy entered a plea of not guilty through his agent, at Wick Sheriff Court on Wednesday.
The charges allege that the 47-year-old brandished a box-cutter blade and slashed items of clothing in the Co-op store's car park in Wick, on June 2. The victim of the alleged £15 theft wasn't specified.
Solicitor Natalie Paterson told the court that she had taken full instructions from Duffy after he made an eight-hour trip north to Wick from his home at Moncur Crescent, Dundee, on Tuesday.
The accused is scheduled to return to Wick for his trial on October 19.
