Police car rammed

A CRANBOURNE North man may find himself on the wrong side of new ramming laws after allegedly driving a Holden Commodore at a police vehicle in Frankston last Friday night. Frankston Tasking Unit uniformed officers tried to intercept the Commodore with stolen plates in Hickory Crescent at about 9.30pm on Friday 4 May before the car hit the rear passenger door of the police vehicle. A passenger, 41 from Frankston North, got out of the Commodore and was arrested before the collision. The driver, a 24-year-old from Cranbourne North, was arrested by police nearby and charged with several offences including reckless exposure of an emergency worker to risk by driving, aggravated intentional exposure of an emergency worker to risk by driving and reckless conduct endangering serious injury. New offences introduced by the state government earlier this year mean anyone ramming to trying to ram a police vehicle can face up to 20 years in jail and must serve a minimum of two years if convicted. The driver is also believed to be responsible for other car thefts in the area including a burglary at Bay City Holden in Frankston on 1 May. He was held in custody. The passenger, 41, was also charged with car theft and was bailed to appear in Frankston Magistrates’ Court in August.

Uber driver attacked

CRIME Investigation Unit detectives are appealing for witnesses following the assault of a deaf Uber driver in Frankston North late last month. The attack happened on Frankston-Dandenong Road at Carrum Downs on Sunday 29 April at 9.30pm. The victim, a 64-year-old deaf man from Wallan, told police he saw a black Holden Captiva driving erratically in the right-hand lane. As the Uber driver passed the Captiva, he flashed his lights to let the driver know he was passing on the inside lane. The Captiva then slowed down and changed lanes, driving directly behind the victim, who was slowing down to turn on to Ballarto Road. As the victim attempted to turn off, the Captiva struck the back of his vehicle before accelerating away along Frankston-Dandenong Road. The victim followed the Captiva, at a distance, until it turned off on to a side street. He pulled in behind the Captiva and began to write the Captiva’s registration details into a book. While doing this a male occupant got out of the Captiva and approached the victim’s car. He opened the driver’s side door and snatched the book from the victim’s hand. The victim got out of his car indicating that he wanted the book returned. The man punched the victim in the face causing cuts to his eyebrow and forehead. Two other men got out of the Captiva and began hitting the victim on his body and head. The
