At Portsea, a man was charged after two “Molotov cocktails” were allegedly thrown at a house, 1.30am, Monday 27 November.
Police will allege the man and a mate followed a group of young people from a hotel to a Latham Drive house. They were refused entry to the house and returned with what police described as two “improvised incendiary devices” which they allegedly threw at the house.
Neither device – said to be two beer bottles filled with accelerant – ignited. One smashed a window causing a small amount of damage but the other fell short. Sorrento CFA crews attended.
An 18-year-old Blairgowrie man was later bailed to appear at Dromana Magistrates’ Court next month charged with reckless conduct endangering serious injury and criminal damage.
