THE RUMOUR FILE

A 29-year-old Preston man has been arrested after a violent crime spree yesterday morning.

The man, armed with a hammer, allegedly tried to rob a service station on Bell Street, Preston at 4.45am.

He was unsuccessful and 10 minutes later tried again at another service station on Willsmere Road, Kew, where he again walked away empty-handed.

At 5.10am two men and a woman confronted a man outside a post office on Willsmere Road, threatening him with a knife and stealing his car.

One of the men is believed to be the man who was involved in the failed service station robberies.

The arrested man is currently assisting police with their enquires.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential report online at crimestoppersvic.com.au
