Bourke Street's Trolley Man Has Handed Himself Into Police

Police wanting to speak.

17 November 2018

The Melbourne "trolley man" who jumped in to try and help police subdue last week's Bourke Street attacker has handed himself over after it was revealed he was a wanted man.


Michael Rogers has been dubbed a hero after trying to ram knife-wielding Hassan Khalif Shire Ali with a shopping cart after his stabbing rampage last Friday afternoon.

The act prompted a crowdfunding campaign to help the homeless man back on his feet, but it also brought him to the attention of police who wanted to speak to him for a series of burglaries in St Kilda and the CBD.

Mr Rogers, 46, is understood to have handed himself over to police on Friday night.

Police confirmed on Saturday a man had been charged with two counts of burglary, two of theft and committing an indictable offence while on bail.

He's due to appear at the Melbourne Magistrates Court on Saturday.
