A woman has died after an alleged stabbing inside a busy Perth hotel
‘Police were called to the hotel as a result of a disturbance and a female adult was located on one of the upper floors,’ Homicide Squad detective senior Sergeant Michael Fogell said.
‘She was unresponsive and appeared to have suffered a traumatic event.’
The woman was given first aid by St John Ambulance paramedics and taken to Royal Perth Hospital where she was pronounced dead.
The arrested man was found at the scene.
‘An adult male we suspect was involved in that traumatic incident was taken into custody at the scene,’ Snr Sgt Fogell told the ABC.
‘It [happened] on one of the upper floors inside one of the rooms and then migrated into the corridor outside that room, and yes there were witnesses.
‘The circumstances of her injuries indicate that a weapon was involved, however it is too early in the investigation to confirm what weapon and how she’s sustained her injuries.’
Witnesses say they saw a naked man covered in blood arrested in the lobby yesterday shortly after the incident.
Guests were locked out of the hotel for hours as forensic detectives began investigations into the alleged stabbing
‘As they came out they had a gentleman on the gurney, he was covered in quite a bit of blood. They were doing CPR,’ Snr Sgt Fogell said.
‘My information at this point is that the male person was a guest at this hotel, but there’s no information on the female.’
Police are continuing to investigate the incident.
They have urged any members of the public with information to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
