    A 43-year-old man in Doubleview, Perth was arrested just after midnight last night, suspected of dousing three young children with petrol and setting them alight. An off-duty police officer living in Holbeck Street came to their aid.

    He appeared in court this morning in what reporters are saying was a very 'bizarre and dramatic' scene. He's been charged with one count of aggravated grievous bodily harm and two counts of attempted grievous bodily harm and is remanded in custody.

    Has there been any mention of whether or not the attacker was related to the children in any way? It doesn't seem like it was a stranger in the house.

    Neighbour who put him in a chokehold really was brave - the suspect was armed with a filleting knife.

    I wonder if there have been previous incidents of violence or aggression, and if substance abuse is involved?

    Heartbroken for that little girl. If she was laying down as stated, I'm guessing a large percentage of her body is burned. Hope she survives.

    This is probably a horrible thing to say, but if she was very horribly burned all over, I wonder if she would be better off at the Rainbow Bridge with her waiting loved ones. I hate to think of the horrible pain and the endless surgeries and skin grafts she has to endure. It is so heartbreaking. Let alone her realizing that her DADDY set her on fire. UGH
