Alleged child stalker charged

A 37-year-old Yangebup man has been charged with aggravated stalking of a 12-year-old girl in Butler.

The girl was allegedly walking along Lukin Drive between 3pm and 4.30pm on Wednesday, February 28 when she became aware of a white Holden Commodore driving alongside her.

Police allege the male driver was filming her on his mobile phone.

The girl asked for help from a member of the public and the car was later seen in the carpark of a nearby shopping centre.

Joondalup detectives arrested the man after searching his car and finding two mobile phones.

Images in the man’s possession led to a search warrant being carried out in his home. A number of electronic storage devices were seized by police.

The devices are still being investigated.

Detectives urge anyone with further information to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or make a report online at www.crimestopperswa.com.au
