RUMOUR CONFIRMED: Group of up to 30 teens run riot in Yarraville Park
An ‘out of control’ group of up to 30 teenagers caused havoc in Melbourne’s west on Saturday night.
3AW Breakfast’s Rumour File questioned on Monday whether there had been trouble at a Yarraville park.
On Tuesday, one local confirmed those reports.
Chelsea Miller told 3AW Breakfast she was about to go to bed shortly after 11pm when she heard noise coming from a nearby park.
She looked outside and saw a massive group of teenagers.
‘They were just drinking, being loud and being teenagers, basically,’ she explained.
But then Chelsea started to smell paint.
And that’s when things got ugly.
‘They just went wild,’ she said.
Chelsea said the group started jumping on cars, spraying graffiti on buildings, urinating and smashing bottles.
There was also a fight.
‘These kids were just out of control,’ Chelsea said.
She said she rang police three times but they were too busy to attend.
