Clarkson detectives charged the 35-year-old woman on July 1 following the incident that took place about 2pm that afternoon when the woman and others were at the Kingsbridge Boulevard supermarket.
‘They were followed outside and approached by two loss prevention guards in relation to a number of food and cosmetic items believed to be in their possession,’ a police spokesman said.
‘It will be further alleged that when approached about the items, the accused sprayed deodorant in the face of the male loss prevention officer.
‘It will be alleged the accused then entered a silver Holden Barina hatchback and drove towards the female loss prevention officer, however, the vehicle hit a metal pole.’
The spokesman said there were adults and two 11-year-old children in the car.
‘It will be further alleged the accused reversed her vehicle, and again drove at the female loss prevention officer, who was returning to the store, and struck her with the vehicle,’ he said.
‘The victim had moved away from the entrance of the store to a nearby grassed area to protect customers that were present.
‘The victim became trapped under the front of the car. The vehicle was then reversed, at which time it hit a pole, and driven forward at the victim again.’
He said the male guard removed the accused from the car, and police attended and arrested her.
The injured guard, a 36-year-old, was taken to Royal Perth Hospital with serious injuries.
The woman charged was remanded after appearing in court on Tuesday and will reappear at Stirling Gardens Magistrates Court later this month. Anyone with information can call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
