In dramatic fashion, a man has been arrested after a woman was found dead in her home. She had fled about 200 kilometers from the suspected crime scene before police subdued him with tasers.

Western Australia Police said the 33-year-old man was assisting officers with their investigation into the death of the 61-year-old woman in southeast Perth on Sunday.

It is claimed that the two knew each other.

Police were called to the house in Byford at around 7.05pm on Sunday following reports of a woman suffering from serious injury.

Officers reportedly found the woman dead upon arrival.

It is alleged the man fled the scene in a silver Peugeot estate car and was not seen by police until 9.15pm, 200 kilometres north of the crime scene in the rural town of Moora.

A Western Australia Police spokeswoman said the man did not stop after the hazard lights and siren were activated.

The man was stopped in the town of Bindi Bindi – 40km east of Moora – when police deployed a tire-deflating device on the Great Northern Highway.

After he allegedly began behaving aggressively and challenging police, tasers were deployed.

The man was arrested and is assisting the police with the investigation.

No charges have been filed so far.
