He was taken into custody and has since been charged with possessing a prohibited weapon and being armed in a way which may cause fear.

A WA Police spokesman said the Nollamara man would appear in Perth Magistrates Court on Thursday.

“It will be alleged the man parked his vehicle on King Street and removed a suitcase from the vehicle,” he said.

“It will be further alleged the man placed a gel blaster gun similar in design to an AR-15 assault rifle on the ground next to him and put on a pair of boots and a black military style mesh vest with “SWAT” embossed on the back.
