Arrest of man who ‘shouldn’t be there’


A LITTLE girl ran into her mother’s bedroom at their home in Seaford and told her a man was in the house who “shouldn’t be there”, 4.15am, Wednesday 26 September.

The woman told police she confronted the man who turned and calmly walked off along Seaford Road. Police arrived with the Dog Squad who arrested a Mt Martha man, 46, nearby. He was allegedly found with items from the house, including a handbag and keys. He may have entered through an unlocked internal door from the garage.

Detective Senior Constable Peter Morris, of Frankston CIU, said the man was facing a string of charges, including aggravated burglary of the woman’s home, a burglary at a house in Mahoney Crescent, Seaford, as well as theft from a car and another case of theft. He was remanded in custody to appear at Frankston Magistrates’ Court, Wednesday 3 October.
