Police investigating child abducted from Perth street
He is seen leaning against a pickup truck as officers radioed that they had a “suspect in custody.” Acting Inspector Scott Johnson, of the sex crimes division, praised the father who first reported the alleged incident. “That’s probably one of the main reasons this got resolved — a parent who realizes something wasn’t right, sees a kid get into a car almost to school, and reports it right away — it’s paramount,” he said. “It’s one of those things that parents need to have that tough conversation with kids about stranger danger and talk to someone or go to someone or do anything online.” Forensic officers were also seen at a bush location believed to be related to the alleged abduction. WA Premier Roger Cook described the trader’s alleged crimes as “dirty and depraved”. “I don’t think words can describe my utter disgust and loathing, or that of the WA community, for these activities,” he told a news conference on Saturday morning. “Our hearts go out to that girl, to the family and to the police involved in this important work.” Darken has worked for Abel Patios and Roofing and as a Wildcat operator in the past, according to the jobs he listed on his numerous social media profiles.
