Cockburn men to appear in court over separate incidents

TWO Cockburn men will appear in court today after being charged over separate incidents.

A South Lake man is alleged to have threatened two people with a knife outside a Willagee supermarket on Archibald Street in an attempt to gain access to car keys just before 7pm on Sunday.

The 22-year-old was charged with assault with intent to rob and for making threats with intent to prevent or hinder.

Elsewhere, Tactical Response Group officers were called to take a Hammond Park man into custody following an incident in Hamilton Hill overnight.

Police said they were called to a Churm Street home about 7.30pm with reports a man was armed at the home.

“It will be alleged the man threatened the occupants of the home who were known to him. The occupants managed to leave the home unharmed,” a police spokeswoman said.

“The man stayed inside the home until Tactical Response Group officers entered the home and took him into custody.”

The 32-year-old was charged with being armed in a way to cause fear, aggravated possession of an unlicensed firearm, possessing unlicensed ammunition, failing to ensure safekeeping of firearm and criminal damage.

Both men will appear in Fremantle Magistrates Court today.
