A MAN has been charged after allegedly causing thousands of dollars damage to several Innaloo shops.

Police were called to the Morris Place shops on Saturday about 1.45pm after receiving reports a man was acting aggressively.

After abusing shoppers he allegedly started throwing items, including a metal pole, chair and blackboard, through store windows.

He smashed the shopfront windows of Tapasman and Cellarbrations, and the window and glass display cabinet at Morris Meat Market, causing more than $5000 damage.

The man ran from police when officers arrived and allegedly produced a kitchen knife, causing police to taser him.

The 30-year-old Innaloo man was charged with three criminal damage offences, obstructing police and carrying an article with intent to cause fear and remanded in custody to face court.
