Two heavily tattooed men believed to be carrying a firearm are on the run after overturning a car at the front of a home in Cranbourne this morning, 9 February.
It is believed a man driving a stolen car crashed into a road sign on Monahans Road just after 9am.
Investigators believe the man may have fled the crashed car and gotten into another stolen car driven by a second man.
The pair, believed to be in possession of a firearm, then rammed a police vehicle ,which had attempted to pull over the car at the intersection of the South Gippsland Highway and Camms Road.
A short pursuit followed but was terminated shortly after for safety reasons.
There was no injuries to police members.
The two men are believed to be travelling in a black Toyota Aurion sedan with registration WPQ300, which was last seen on Narre-Warren Cranbourne Road.
Both are perceived as Caucasian in appearance and heavily tattooed.
One was wearing a blue singlet.
Anyone who sights the car or has information is urged not to approach the vehicle but to contact triple-zero.
