Four Arrested Following Glen Waverley Police Chase

As part of Operation Trinity, police have arrested four boys following a pursuit through Melbourne's south-east ending in Glen Waverley.

Police were alerted to a red Isuzu D-Max ute, allegedly involved in a number of burglaries and robberies yesterday, in Box Hill about 12:15am.

It is understood the ute attended a service station on Canterbury Road before the attendant notified police.

Trinity units attended and patrolled the area for the vehicle.

The ute was spotted by police on Wellington Road and the Monash Freeway about 12.35am.

Air Wing tracked the ute to Pakenham before it travelled inbound on the Monash Freeway.

Stop sticks were successfully deployed on the Monash Freeway, Glen Iris, just before 2am.

A pursuit was initiated and a second round of stop sticks were deployed.

The ute crashed into a tree at slow speed on Springvale Road, Glen Waverley.

Four males dumped the car and allegedly attempted to flee the scene on foot.

A 13-year-old boy, 14-year-old Doveton boy and 15-year-old Springvale boy were arrested nearby about 2am.

A 13-year-old Noble Park boy was located hiding nearby a short time later by a Dog Squad unit.

He sustained a dog bite whilst allegedly attempting to resist being taken into custody and was transported to hospital with minor injuries.

The boys are currently assisting police with their enquiries.

Anyone who witnessed the incident, has CCTV/dashcam footage or information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential report at
