A 62-year-old woman has died after a fight in a northern suburb of Perth.
The woman received fatal injuries during the altercation at a house in Melliodora Circle, Mirrabooka, on Thursday afternoon.
She was taken to the Royal Perth Hospital and died from her injuries the following morning.
A 42-year-old man, who was a friend of the woman, has been taken into custody and is helping police with inquiries.
Detectives from the major crime squad are leading the investigation.
New figures reveal the winners and losers from Perth’s crime surge, with some traditional hotspots like Armadale and Mandurah recording falls as emerging trouble zones like Ellenbrook were hit hard.
