Police have laid more charges over BASE jumping escapades from Perth CBD towers, with four people due to face court over two separate jumps.

Scarborough man Bryce Eden, 35, was last month summoned to appear in court after allegedly jumping from the roof of Perth's Exchange Tower with three others in a stunt which stunned city onlookers.

Footage captured by bystanders showed the jumpers standing on the roof of the building before taking the 40-storey plunge and gliding down to the streets below.
