๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡บ 15 inmates use riot to escape from detention, steal cars. 7 still on the run in Victoria, Australia

Australia: Melbourne reporters were left scrambling today trying understand what was occurring.  The incident comes less than a week after a car was driven into about 30 pedestrians, killing five, in the heart of Melbourne’s CBD – the Bourke Street Mall.

Following ongoing issues within Victoria’s corrections facilities, this latest riot is alleged to lead to a number of vehicles fleeing at high speed and at least one collision with a civilian car.

The latest statement by Police is:

Police are working to secure a correctional facility in Malmsbury after a riot this afternoon.

Police were initially called after a disturbance involving around 30 inmates at around 2.45pm.

It is believed that around 15 inmates escaped the facility and six of those were arrested shortly after.

A further two were arrested a short time ago in the vicinity of Malmsbury.

There are seven inmates still outstanding. It is believed they are travelling in three separate vehicles including a red hatch (registration 1HZ5UN), white Suzuki SUV (personalised registration WILMAK) and a blue falcon sedan (ZVK598).

Members of the community are asked to call Triple Zero (000) if they see either of these vehicles.
