A man was seriously assaulted in Swan View over the weekend.

TWO cars have been crushed, trapping a woman in one of them, by a wall that collapsed in North Fremantle early this afternoon.

The three-storey façade wall at the heritage-listed Matilda Bay Brewing Company, which collapsed and showered the vehicles in bricks and rubble just before 1pm, was weakened by the high winds that hit Perth over the weekend.

The woman, believed to be in her 30s was taken to Royal Perth Hospital with suspected fractures.

Rescuers continued to be hit with falling rubble as they worked to free her.
