Darken, who was wearing his hi-vis work clothes at the time, was later arrested after police swarmed the area.

On Friday, he pleaded guilty to deprivation of liberty, detaining another with intent to prevent or hinder a person from doing an act and making a threat to unlawfully to do an act, the West Australian reported.

The victim’s family cried as he admitted to the offences via videolink from Hakea Prison.

Darken is also facing two drugs charges which he is yet to enter a plea for.

He will be sentenced in January.
