Burglar On The Loose In Melbourne's CBD

Burglar On The Loose In Melbourne's CBD”

Jackson Ireland, of no fixed address, made no application for bail when he appeared in the Melbourne Magistrates' court this afternoon over the alleged ramming of a police vehicle yesterday at Bourke Street mall.

It happened shortly after 5:00pm on Tuesday, when police responded to reports of an unconscious man in a parked vehicle with a smashed windscreen.

Pedestrians said they feared for their lives as the auto mounted the footpath and drove towards them before hitting the police vehicle.

Two guns were found inside the auto, police said.

A statutory two-year minimum jail term will be imposed if an on-duty police officer or emergency worker is injured by an adult offender who has intentionally exposed the worker to risk by driving.

"Anyone who uses their vehicle as a weapon against our police officers deserves to be locked up - and that's exactly what these tough new laws will deliver", said Ms. Neville.

Damaging an emergency service vehicle would also be an offence if the legislation passed.

Melbourne Crime Investigation Unit detectives say they will investigate whether this burglary may be linked to other burglaries within the vicinity this morning.
