As it happened: WA news on Friday, May 17


Three people — including two teenagers — are facing 18 charges between them over an alleged terrifying two-hour long rampage through Perth’s northern suburbs.

Detectives claim the crime spree began on Great Eastern Highway in South Guildford just after 11pm on April 17, when two people were allegedly seen attempting to enter the home before being spooked by a motion sensor light.

Later, a 22-year-old man involved then allegedly struck a woman in her 20s with a piece of wood in Guildford before stealing from her.

He then refuelled at a petrol station, allegedly without paying, before heading to Baskerville, where he and two teenagers attempted to steal from a bottle shop.

A man leaving a fast-food restaurant in Aveley then allegedly had his car blocked by a stolen vehicle.

Someone from the stolen car allegedly approached the victim armed with a tyre iron in an attempt to steal his car. He ran to safety.

The 22-year-old man, from Swan View, was hit with a string of charges, including attempted aggravated burglary with intent. He is due to appear in court on June 1.

A 15-year-old boy from Kiara is facing six charges. He was refused bail and is due to appear in court on June 17.

Meanwhile, a 14-year-old boy from Westminster was charged and appeared in Perth Children’s Court on Friday.
