Man charged in death of partner in Perth CBD

A 27-year-old man has been charged in the death of his partner in Perth CBD.

The 24-year-old woman was found on Wellington Street, near Pier Street, in the early hours of Thursday morning.

The couple had met with a group of people in Yagan Square, with the alleged attack caught on surveillance cameras, police said.

“Police and St. John Ambulance WA were called to the location just before 3am,” police said in a statement.

“Paramedics administered first aid to the woman, but unfortunately she could not be revived.”

Police announced on Friday that the Newman man has since been charged with an unlawful act or omission with intent to harm (endangering someone’s life, health or safety).

He is scheduled to appear before Perth Magistrates Court later on Friday.
