A Mandurah man has been charged with 20 offences after he allegedly rammed three cars, a fence and a house between Serpentine and Byford.

Police will allege the man was passenger in a vehicle being driven by another man from an address in Greenfields about 3:30am on Friday.

During the journey, the 31 year old man produced a knife and made threats towards the driver who was able to stop the car in Serpentine around an hour later and get out before attempting to flag down a passing Nissan Navara being driven by 40 year old woman.
