Car torched near soccer club

By Cam Lucadou-Wells

A car has been mysteriously torched soon after the driver was blocked-in near a Dandenong soccer ground.

Greater Dandenong CIU suspect, but hasn’t confirmed, that a Molotov cocktail may have destroyed the silver-grey Kia on the corner of Albert Street and Hammond Road in Dandenong.

The driver had stopped his car due to another vehicle pulling up directly in front of him about 7.50pm on Tuesday 2 July.

He fled from his car to seek help from a friend training at a nearby soccer club at Andrews Reserve.

When he returned a short time later, the car’s seats were extensively damaged by fire.

Any information to Detective Senior Constable Matthew Moore at Greater Dandenong CIU on 9767 7487, or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or
