Charges over weapons, assault


A BITTERN man will face counts of affray, assault-related charges, weapons offences and criminal damage after an incident at Frankston two months ago.

The 21-year-old was charged last week and remanded to appear at Frankston Magistrates Court, Wednesday 28 October.

Detectives will allege three men drove to a Corlett Street house in a white van, 3pm, 15 August.

The men, allegedly armed with weapons, smashed the windows of a house and vehicle, causing extensive damage, before they fought with a fourth man who was allegedly armed with a weapon.

The driver of the van and the two unidentified suspects fled in the van.

Detectives are appealing for witnesses to assist in identifying these two men.

A 28-year-old Frankston man was charged with affray and being a prohibited person to possess firearms and has since been convicted. A 23-year-old Pakenham man was released without charge.

Police have released CCTV footage and an image of two men they are yet to speak with who they believe may be able to assist with their inquiries.

One is described as Caucasian, aged 19-25, medium build with a large tattoo on his right calf. He was wearing a blue hoodie with a long white t-shirt underneath, grey shorts, white shoes and a black hat.

The other is aged 19-25, thin build with an olive complexion. He was wearing a grey hoodie with a white t-shirt underneath, shorts, black beanie and black face-mask.
