Car set ablaze by two men


TWO men who set a car alight in Cranbourne North last month are wanted by police.

Police believe that two men set a car parked at a house on Freshfields Drive alight at around 2.30am on 22 August. One man poured an accelerant from a plastic bottle onto the car before igniting the blaze.

The two men fled towards Thompsons Road, and have not been caught.

The occupant of the house observed the incident and extinguished the flames with a hose. The exterior of the car is extensively damaged, but nobody was hurt.

Images of two men police wish to speak to have been released. They are both wearing hooded jumpers, track pants, and sneakers.
