Tomahawk used in attempted robbery of Halls Head Red Rooster

Police have charged a man after he allegedly threatened staff with a tomahawk in the drive-through of Red Rooster Halls Head on Thursday.

It’s understood the man ordered food through the window of the restaurant located on the corner of Peelwood Parade and Guava Way about 8:15pm.

The man drove a Toyota Fortuner to the second window before he allegedly swung a tomahawk at a staff member and demanded cash.

Police allege the man got out of the car for a brief moment, as the team member ran for safety, but he then got back in the Toyota and sped off.

Several hours later, officers located the suspect, asleep, inside the vehicle in bushland off Dunkerton Drive in Furnissdale.

Police smashed the Toyota Fortuner’s windows to arrest the man.

The vehicle was allegedly stolen from a property in Carnarvon on Tuesday and had been linked to multiple crimes committed across Perth.

The 25-year-old, with no fixed address, has been charged with 20 offences including armed robbery.

He is expected to appear in the Perth Magistrates Court today.
