A MAN was attacked and robbed of his $1000 mobile phone as he walked along Chelsea Rd, Chelsea earlier this month. The 31-year-old told Chelsea police four men of African appearance, aged in their 20s, approached him from behind between Drinan Rd and Station St, 12.30am, Wednesday 5 April. They pushed him to the ground and punched and kicked him before taking his grey I-Phone 6 from his pocket. The man received a swollen ring finger, grazes to his right elbow and knee and soreness to his back.

Mustang stolen, wrecked TWO youths who allegedly stole a late model Ford Mustang before it was written off in a collision at Drouin West, Saturday 15 April, faced a bail hearing yesterday (Tuesday). The youths, 15, of Mordialloc, and 16, of Carrum Downs, on bail at the time, allegedly stole the $68,000 silver car from the garage of a Mentone home, overnight Friday 14 April. Police believe the youths took a remote control from the owner’s Toyota Landcruiser parked outside to enter a garage where they found keys to the Mustang in its centre console, 11pm. They also allegedly failed in an attempt to steal a BMW X5. The owner’s wife told police she heard the Mustang start up and reverse out of the garage about 11pm, stall, and then race up the street before braking hard. Her son found the Toyota’s door open at about 1am and shut it. Mornington Peninsula police later reported the Mustang had been involved in a collision with the Warragul divisional van, 2.15am, in which the car was written off. The youths will go before a children’s court at a later date.

Thieves run amok TWO kayaks were among items valued at $6000 stolen from an Edithvale house early Sunday 16 April. Also taken were two laptops from the lounge room of the Kinross Av house, an i-pad, sports bag containing a martial arts uniform, wallet and two sets of car keys. The victims, aged

in their 30s, were asleep when thieves entered using a flat blade tool. Police believe the robbery is linked to another further down the street where a lawnmower and a bottle of champagne were stolen from a vacant house. The champagne was a present to the property’s new owners.

Jet ski, trailer stolen A JET ski on a trailer was stolen from an apartment complex car park in McLeod Rd, Patterson Lakes, over the Easter weekend. The offenders removed a wheel clamp from the trailer and hooked it and the red Sea Doo to their car and drove off. The trailer’s registration is W85654 and the jet ski’s MJ983. The car park has electronic gates opened with a code. CCTV footage is being examined.

Shop robbed AN Edithvale tattoo shop was robbed after an offender used a hammer to smash a section of the front plate glass window, overnight Thursday 13 April. Moorabbin police said $150 cash was stolen, with the damage bill estimated at $1200.

Charges over hit run A HASTINGS man will be charged with failing to stop and render assistance after his car collided with a pedestrian in Coolstore Rd, Hastings 6.55pm, Monday. Sergeant Peter Martin, of Somerville Highway Patrol, said the man, 30, claimed he swerved to avoid a dog just before the incident. The victim, 23, of Langwarrin, suffered life threatening injuries when he was struck, just east of Wallace Drive. He was flown to The Alfred hospital with life-threatening injuries and was in a critical condition on Tuesday. The driver attended Hastings police station soon afterwards and alerted police. Investigators were at the scene on Tuesday morning to determine the circumstances leading up to the collision. Anyone with information about any of these incident can call Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000.
