Perth Thief Tries To Steal Car, Can't Start Engine
Car trouble and a locked door stopped an 18-year-old man from allegedly stealing a couple of cars on Saturday night.
Police say the victim drove to a hotel car park in Rivervale about 8.30pm when the offender opened the driver's door and threatened him to get out of the car.
The offender got inside the car but couldn’t start the engine with the keys, so he walked to another car that was running and tried to open the door but it was locked.
He returned to the first car but again failed to start the engine.
He was arrested at the scene and charged with aggravated robbery.
