Commuter robbed near Dandy station

By Cam Lucadou-Wells

A train commuter has been robbed by males armed with a baseball bat as he walked to his car near Dandenong railway station on the evening of 26 July.

About 7.50pm, the 22-year-old man was approached by two men from the other side of Railway Parade near Pickett Street.

One of the men lifted their top, revealing the bat tucked into his pants.

The victim complied with a demand to hand over “everything he had, including his backpack”, Senior Constable Chris Ryan of Greater Dandenong CIU said.

He fled after the second male claimed he was armed with an unseen knife.

The robbers headed east towards Foster Street.

The first offender was described as African, wearing a black jumper, black jeans, Adidas shoes and a large tattoo on his neck.

The other male was described as African, wearing a green jumper with a ‘Supreme’ logo.

Transit CIU police are investigating the robbery.
