A 28-year-old man has been arrested in Perth over a series of incidents across the metropolitan area, including a six-car collision.
Key points:Police from numerous districts were called to attend the incidents A man was arrested on the Kwinana Freeway on Saturday morning Investigations into the series of incidents are ongoing
The man was reportedly involved in the six-car crash on Warton and Amherst roads in Canning Vale just after 8:00pm on Friday before allegedly ramming and stealing a black Mazda CX-9.
The man then drove the Mazda towards the Kwinana Freeway, where police allege he rammed and attempted to steal another vehicle on the South Street on-ramp.
Dozens of police were called to assist in the series of incidents which began on Friday night and ended on Saturday.(ABC News)
The man then allegedly abandoned the Mazda, and left the scene on foot.

About 8:40pm, police said the man went to a house on Earnshaw Loop in Leeming, where he allegedly stole a red Volkswagen Jetta, before travelling to Westminster Street in East Victoria Park around 10.30pm and crashing into a parked vehicle, which then ploughed into the front of a home.

Police say the man travelled in the Mazda to a number of locations across Perth on Saturday morning before being taken into custody on the Kwinana Freeway in Hammond Park at around 10:20am.
Man armed with small axe, police allege
Superintendent Mark Longman from the Armadale District Office said police believed the man, who was out on bail, was armed during the incidents.
"When he was apprehended, he was apprehended in possession of a small axe, or hatchet, tomahawk, whatever you like to refer to it as," he said.

"We believe that may have been used in some of the offending."
The superintendent said authorities put significant resources in to locating the alleged offender.
"It was violent, aggressive behaviour, and it would have left some of the victims quite shaken and feeling quite unsafe," he said.
