Alleged burglar cuts up rough


AN intruder with a broken beer bottle in his hand allegedly charged Rosebud police when they answered a burglary call-out at Flinders, 11pm, Friday 22 September.

The Welshpool man, 39, was described as “violent” by police who sprayed him with OC foam (capsicum spray) before arresting him. One policeman received minor injuries in the struggle in Stokes St.

Members of the family living in the house said they had been watching TV in the front room when they saw a man shining a torch in their rear bungalow and called 000. He had earlier been in their kitchen allegedly stealing items. The man was remanded to appear at Frankston Magistrates’ Court on Monday 25 September charged with aggravated burglary and other offences. He was further remanded to appear at Melbourne Magistrates’ Court at a later date also charged with five thefts from cars and other burglaries in the area.
