Sinister damage to parked cars

VICTORIA Police Major Collision Investigation Unit have called for witnesses to a crash on the Woods Point Road at Kevington last Friday, which claimed the lives of two men and left one woman seriously injured.

MANSFIELD police are investigating two offences which potentially could have caused serious traffic accidents – with a victim viewing the acts as “attempted murder”.

Two vehicles had their brake lines deliberately cut on Monday, October 26 between midnight and 6am along Ailsa Street.

Investigating officer First Constable Gemma Blackall said it was lucky a serious accident was avoided.

“This is quite a serious offence – it could have been very bad,” First Const Blackall said.

It is alleged that two cars, one in the middle of Ailsa Street and one located at the east end, both had their brake lines cut, with a third vehicle vandalised.
“We are assuming the attacks are related,” First Const Blackall said.

“One vehicle had both brake and fuel lines cut, the other just brake lines.”
