Four teenagers have been charged as part of the ongoing investigation into a wild brawl at a shopping centre south of Perth.

The youngest duo, aged just 14, have been charged for their involvement in the riot outside Woolworths at Secret Harbour on Tuesday which left a number of people, including two police officers and a security guard, injured.

So far five teenagers and four adults have been charged for the fight which shocked the Secret Harbour community.

Another 14-year-old boy received a juvenile caution for his role in the fight.

On Friday, Mandurah detectives appealed for help to identify a sixth boy, who assaulted a 52-year-old man.

“The boy is described as fair skinned with a slim build,” a police spokesperson said.

“He was last seen wearing a black t-shirt, black shorts and a cap. He was also wearing dark coloured shoes with a red motif.”

Of the four teenagers charged on Friday, a 14-year-old from Secret Harbour, a 14-year-old from Port Kennedy and a 16-year-old from Baldivis will appear in the Rockingham Children’s Court on Wednesday May 15.

The fourth teen, a 15-year-old from Golden Bay, will appear in the same court on Wednesday June 5.

On Friday afternoon, the principal of the nearby high school Comet Bay College issued a statement, distancing the school and its students from the wild brawl.

“I can say that after viewing numerous CCTV videos supplied by Mandurah Police that no student who is currently attending Comet Bay College was involved in the incident,” CBC principal Jamie Hayres said.

“The small number of students who were present stood watching as events unfolded and as the incident escalated, moved away and left the shopping centre.”

The brawl was allegedly a planned fight between two groups of teenagers.

A 21-year-old Warnbro man allegedly assaulted a public officer during the fight and obstructed police.

Two other Warnbro men, aged 24 and 18, are facing taking part in a riot charges while a 19-year-old Port Kennedy man will also front court for his alleged involvement.

As the investigation in the brawl is ongoing, anyone with information on the fight should call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or report it online at www.crimestopperswa.com.au
