Premier Daniel Andrews' Office Has Been Vandalised
A vandal has thrown a brick at windows attached to Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews' office.
The perpetrator has also used spray paint to write 'SACK DAN' across the front facade of the parliamentary office on Princes Highway in Noble Park, in Melbourne's south.
A caller to 3AW Radio said: "The window is broken, not completely shattered. There's spray paint all over the front."
Police have been called in to investigate and will look at CCTV cameras to see if they shed any light on who was behind the attack.
"Investigators were told an office building on Princes Highway was graffitied and damaged by an unidentified person," a police spokesperson said in a statement.
"An investigation in underway and police urge any witnesses or anyone with information to contact Crime Stoppers."
This is the second time in a matter of weeks that Mr Andrews' office has been targeted. Graffiti had only just been removed from the building on 25 September.
The Premier has faced a growing level of discontent in Melbourne as he keeps the city under lockdown to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

He is due to make an announcement on Sunday about the roadmap out of lockdown restrictions. However, according to 9News, he has indicated that he won't be following the plan that has been previously announced.
When his office was vandalised last month, the Premier acknowledged that the current state of living for Melburnians was tough, but necessary to stop the spread of the pandemic.
"These measures come with a cost. There is a public health benefit, but there is also a cost," he said.
"This is not an indefinite arrangement.
"At some point, the cost of the restrictions will be greater than the increased risk and the increased challenge for our public health team to keep the virus suppressed if we open earlier than we had planned."
Victoria broke a six-day streak of having double digit daily new infections of the coronavirus yesterday. The state lodged seven new cases and five deaths.
The rolling 14-day average has now dipped to 9.8 and regional Victoria is at 0.6.
