Violent rampage leads to charges

The 24-year-old Beechboro man faced court last Sunday charged with two counts each of common assault and endangering life, health or safety and one count of common assault in circumstances of aggravation and was remanded in custody to reappear in the Perth Magistrates court on April 7.

Police allege that on March 28 at 7.55pm, three men were behaving in a disorderly manner at Outback Jacks on James Street.

The incident escalated when an armed 24-year-old man allegedly threatened customers and the other two started throwing tables and chairs.

The manager of the restaurant, a 49-year-old-man, approached one of the men and was punched in the face, causing him to fall to the ground.

While on the ground, the man allegedly kicked him.

It is further alleged the man then threw a chair at a 45-year-old female customer, hitting her on the head.

The three men ran from the restaurant down James Street towards William Street, causing multiple disturbances.

It is alleged the 24-year-old-man armed himself with chairs and wooden poles, throwing them at people at the intersection of William Street and James Street, before throwing a bottle at a family standing at the intersection.

The man then ran towards the Perth Cultural Centre and punched a 76-year-old man in the face, causing him to lose his balance and fall to the ground, injuring his wrist.

Inquiries are continuing and police would like to speak to anyone who was in Northbridge that night and may have seen the three men.
