A MAN’S been arrested after a small bomb went off in Leederville on January 20 and a second unexploded device was found on King Street in the CBD.
Police have charged 29-year-old Queens Park man Yarran Leslie over the incidents and they’ve alleged he set off the bomb after a Sombrero’s worker rejected his advances.
Police described the bomb as an “improvised explosive device” and it scattered debris about 10m away.
That night police got a call from someone who’d taken a similar device out of a car on King Street and the intersection with Wellington Street was sealed off to get the bomb squad in to render it safe.
Leslie’s in jail ahead of his next court date in February.
