Two more men have been charged over the stabbing death of a "selfless" teenager who died while trying to protect his friends outside a house party in Perth last week.

Chikayne Heslip was at the house party in Waikiki on Saturday night with more than 100 other people when partygoers started spilling on to Porpoise Grove about 11.30pm.

Police allege the 17-year-old was attacked by a group of people on the street as he "heroically" tried to stand up for friends.

The teenager was allegedly then further assaulted by the same group outside a residence on nearby Resolution Drive.

An 18-year-old man from Parmelia and a 19-year-old man from Port Kennedy have been arrested and charged over the teen's murder.

They have been refused bail and are due to appear in the Rockingham Magistrates' Court today.

Three other men, aged between 17 and 27, were earlier arrested in the Rockingham area and have also been charged with Mr Heslip's murder.

Police were called to Porpoise Grove after reports of a stabbing.

Mr Heslip's family issued a statement saying he "always put others first" and died coming to the aid of friends who were in trouble.

"Our understanding is Chikayne died protecting his mates and in our eyes he'll always be a selfless hero, you'll always be remembered as our hero," the statement read.

Mr Heslip suffered serious injuries and was taken to Rockingham General Hospital, where he later died.
