Western Suburbs Weekly - - News - By JON BAS­SETT

A MAN al­legedly threat­ened to shoot his part­ner as her chil­dren watched in a car near Daglish Rail­way Sta­tion on Rail­way Pa­rade in Daglish late on May 28.

“It will be al­leged he pointed a loaded ri­fle at her and threat­ened to shoot her if she left him,” Se­nior Sergeant Kate Vi­vian said.

The woman (25), her part­ner and the chil­dren had been living at an East Can­ning­ton house, be­fore she and the chil­dren were home­less af­ter leav­ing the house a day ear­lier.

An ar­gu­ment, cul­mi­nat­ing in the woman al­legedly be­ing hit and the threat to kill, oc­curred when the man and the woman met in the car near the train sta­tion.

“Af­ter which, the man and the woman fell asleep, and when the woman woke she ran from the car with the chil­dren to seek help,” Snr Sgt Vi­vian said.

Po­lice ar­rested the man and a search of the car un­cov­ered a .22 sawn-off ri­fle with a tele­scopic sight, a si­lencer, an ammunition mag­a­zine and ammunition.

An East Can­ning­ton man (32) was charged with threat­en­ing to kill, two counts of as­sault and mul­ti­ple firearms of­fences. He was re­manded in cus­tody to reap­pear at Perth Mag­is­trates Court on June 11. The Women’s Do­mes­tic Vi­o­lence Helpline can be con­tacted on 9223 1188 or 1800 007 339.
