Duo to face court over alleged Forrestfield sling shot attacks

TWO men will appear in court over a series of sling shot attacks on cars, homes and businesses in the Forrestfield area.

Forrestfield Police Acting Senior Sergeant Daniel Steinbeck said it had been a lengthy and complex investigation.

The fact the offences occurred at night made identification even more difficult.

He said the distinctive noise of a vehicle’s tyres was one means of identifying suspects and led to one of the accused’s car being stopped and searched.

Jayden Lee Robinson was arrested and charged by Forrestfield Police on September 9, 2017. Police allege he used a sling shot to shoot projectiles at cars, houses and businesses in Forrestfield and High Wycombe.

Mr Robinson has been charged with two counts of criminal damages, two counts of possessing drug paraphernalia, two counts of possessing a controlled weapon, possessing a prohibited weapon, unlicensed possession of ammunition, failing to ensure safe keeping of ammunition and possession of stolen property.

The matter is listed for mention in the Perth Magistrates court on January 17.

Charles Edward Richard Ducker was arrested and charged by Forrestfield Police on November 14, 2017.

Police allege he used a sling shot to shoot projectiles at cars, houses and business windows. He has been charged with 18 criminal damage offences.

The matter is listed for mention at the Midland Magistrates Court on March 23.
