A 26-year-old man has been charged after he allegedly went on a crime spree through Perth’s northern suburbs yesterday.

The man is alleged to have attempted to steal some items from a supermarket on Colstoun Road about 10.30am.

A staff member was approached by a man who pulled out a knife and threatened them with it before walking from the store.

About 11am the same man approached an 19-year-old man on Reid Street in Bassendean and again threatened him with a knife.

The offender demanded money and was given a small amount of cash.

At about 7pm, the same man was reported to be damaging the windows of a home on Claughton Way in Bassendean.

A 26-year-old man was arrested at the scene and charged with armed robbery, stealing and criminal damage and will appear in the Perth Magistrate's Court today.

Meanwhile a 16-year-old Banksia Grove boy will appear in the Children’s Court today charged with armed robbery.

Police will allege the youth and a friend approached four men who were walking along Grand Boulevard in Joondalup about 10pm last night.

The 16-year-old threatened one of the men with a knife and demanded he hand over his phone and wallet.

He was given a small amount of money before he fled to Joondalup Station.

Police and transit guards arrested the youth a short time later.
