12yo boy charged over shocking ‘clothesline’ attack

A 12-year-old boy has been charged with severely injuring a motorbike rider in a shocking ‘clothesline’ attack in Perth’s CBD.

On Thursday Decemeber 17, a 19-year-old man was knocked off his motorbike when he rode into a rope which had been tied across Wellington Street, near Perth railway station.

The rider suffered serious rope burns to his neck and was reportedly also hit over the head with a glass bottle once he took his helmet off.


A Bayswater child has been charged with wounding and will face court today.

I hope the judge will come down hard on this child, then hopefully it will be a wake up call for him – give him a slap on the wrist and tell him he is naughty boy and watch his police record grow.
