Western Australian Police are investigating after a woman’s body was found in a home in Perth’s northeastern suburbs.
Emergency services were called to a property along Birkett St, Bedford, about 5pm on Monday.
The body of a woman was found at the house, and a man was taken into custody.
A WA Police spokesperson said the man is assisting with police inquiries.
“There is no ongoing risk to the broader community and the investigation into the death of the woman is now ongoing,” a statement from WA Police said.
