Man charged over armed abduction bid

Detectives have charged a 30-year-old Kardinya man over an abduction attempt in Jandakot on Tuesday night.

A woman was walking towards Cockburn Central train station about 7pm when a silver Holden Commodore pulled up alongside her on Knock Place and a man got out of the car, police allege.

The man allegedly threatened the 30-year-old woman with a knife and pushed her into the passenger side of the car.

She managed to escape and run towards the train station while the man attempted to get into the driver’s side.

Det-Const. Jesse Stirrat said the victim was shaken but not physically injured during the incident.

Fremantle Detectives have charged the man with deprivation of liberty and threatening to kill.

He is due to appear in Fremantle Magistrate’s Court today.
