POLICE are appealing for public assistance in relation to a series of crimes around Mt Eliza between 19 and 20 February.
Detectives from the Mornington Peninsula crime investigation said a number of burglaries, thefts and an assault around Koornalla Crescent, Barton Drive, Walkers Road and Kunyung Road occurred over that weekend.
Between 10pm on Saturday 19 February and 2am Sunday 20 February police say a group of youths embarked on a “crime spree of offending” where they stole vehicles, took items from vehicles, attempted to gain entry to various residences in the Mount Eliza area, and assaulted a youth.
Investigators believed the same offenders, believed to be teenagers, also gate crashed a beach party at Mount Eliza the same night.
