Port Phillip Crime Investigation Unit detectives have charged a man following an incident where two police vehicles were allegedly rammed in Melbourne’s CBD in the early hours of this morning.

A 23-year-old Heyfield man has been charged with a number of offences, including intentional exposure of police officers to risk by driving, assaulting a police officer and theft of a motor vehicle.

Police were called to reports of torches being shone into cars on Arthur Street about 4.15am on Thursday, 25 August.
