‘He’d been badly bashed’: Police on scene in Melbourne’s south-east


A large police operation is underway in Dandenong North after a man was threatened with a gun early this morning.

Frank told Neil Mitchell the large police presence may be related to an incident that involved his daughter overnight.

“There’s a number of different types of police vehicles there, they’re closing off a number of areas,” he said.

“It may be related to something that happened last night, there was a man hiding on my daughter’s front porch.

“And he’d been badly bashed, he was terrified.”
