The man then staggered into the street where neighbours heard him screaming for help.
Police say he then targeted a second home across the road before jumping into the passenger seat of a parked car.
The owner of the vehicle managed to lock him inside until police arrived.
When officers unlocked the doors the man ran out towards them, acting erratically before jumping on the bonnet of the police car.
Witnesses told 7NEWS it took around six officers to eventually detain him.
The man was arrested and taken to Royal Perth Hospital to undergo surgery to a deep cut to his hand.
No charges have been laid.
