Neighbours terrorised


A MOUNT Martha man allegedly stormed into two neighbours’ houses and terrorised the occupants, 12.30pm, Sunday 1 December.

The man, 43, allegedly forced his way in the front door of a house on the Esplanade and began threatening and verbally abusing a middle aged couple. While they cowered the man, possibly substance-or-drug affected, left and kicked in the front door of another house, again allegedly verbally abusing and threatening the occupants.

No one was injured in the incidents although the occupants were said to be shaken.

The man allegedly refused to come out of the house before being arrested by the Critical Incident Response Unit. He was charged with trespassing, criminal damage and making threats to kill. He appeared before Frankston Magistrates’ Court where he was remanded to reappear in February.
