Good morning Melbourne.
Cloudy with showers, tops of 18.
Here's what's making news:
- A man has been arrested at Prahran after nearly ten hours on the run, a police chase, a car accident and a run in with the dog squad.
The 39-year-old is accused of attacking a tradie working on Carlisle Street, Balaclava at 4pm on Monday before making off with his ute, which was spotted after it ran a red light on Fitzroy Street, St Kilda at 1am on Thursday.
Officers gave chase but stopped the pursuit for safety reasons and tracked him down behind a home at Chomley Street, Prahran, after he crashed the vehicle on Highbury Grove and fled on foot.
He's been treated for injuries from the smash and is expected to be charged with assault, robbery, theft and traffic-related offences.
