Police dog Storm was kept busy overnight with officers using the four-legged crime fighter to find alleged offenders in Perth's eastern suburbs.

In the first incident, police travelling along Barker Road in South Guildford about 6.30pm saw a scooter that was stolen from a Lockridge driveway last Tuesday night.

"It is alleged police sighted the scooter again on Waterhall Road in South Guildford and the rider failed to stop, travelling through parkland," police said.

The scooter was abandoned a short time later.

Storm found the alleged rider at a house in Armitage Close in South Guildford.

A 13-year-old South Guildford boy has been charged with offences including failing to stop and stealing a motor vehicle, and is due to appear in Midland Children's Court later this month.

In the second incident, police were called to a house in Butson Place in Redcliffe about 10pm, after being told that two men had stolen a wallet from the house's front porch and assaulted a 22-year-old man.

The victim suffered cuts and face bruising.

Storm found two men - one of whom was hiding behind a parked car - on Towton Street in Redcliffe.

Two men aged 21 and 26 were taken into custody and are helping police with their inquiries.
