A pandemic protest in Melbourne’s CBD took a dramatic turn with the arrest of a man standing on a car roof allegedly armed with a crossbow.
Victoria Police officers saw the man standing on the vehicle roof on Spring Street around midday on Monday.
The man was allegedly holding a crossbow.
The incident is believed to have been part of a protest as a small group had gathered on the steps of parliament earlier.
They were protesting the pandemic laws.
The 18-year-old man was quickly removed from the car by officers and has been taken to hospital for assessment.
Police are continuing to investigate the exact circumstances surrounding the incident.
Anyone with information have been urged to contact police.
