Three men known to frequent the Mitchell Shire are wanted by police in relation to an assault and theft involved in an alleged carjacking in the Melbourne CBD.
Officers from Melbourne Embona Taskforce have issued three warrants for the arrest of 33-year-old Jarrod Grossman, 32-year-old Daniel Austin and 32-year-old Jake Biddlestone.
The men are known to frequent Seymour, Broadford, Wallan, Nagambie and occasionally Melbourne CBD.
Police have been told a Numurkah man, 27, and an Echuca man, 40, had driven their cars to Caravel Lane, Docklands about 2am on July 29.
They were approached by a group of five men who allegedly assaulted the pair and threatened them with a firearm.
The offenders stole wallets, jewellery and other property from the victims before driving off in one of the victim’s cars.
Investigators do not believe the meeting between the groups was random.
Officers have arrested and charged a 31-year-old man in relation to the matter but require public assistance in locating the other three men.
Anyone who sees the men or has information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or make a confidential report to www.crimestoppersvic.com.au.
