Officers from Westgate Highway Patrol are appealing for dashcam footage after a large crowd gathered in Hoppers Crossing on Saturday morning for an illegal hoon event.

Police were called to Industrial Avenue after reports 30-40 vehicles were doing burn outs just after midnight.

It’s believed the cars were travelling between Industrial Avenue, Richards Road, Horne Street and Dunlop Road.

Upon police arrival the crowd began to disperse and an unknown male wearing a balaclava has run up to the police vehicle and kicked the driver’s side wing mirror, damaging it.

Police were not injured during the incident.

The meeting broke up into smaller groups with one group headed toward Greens Road, Wyndham Vale and the other group travelling along Forsyth Road towards the CBD.

Investigators are keen to speak with anyone who has dashcam or CCTV footage of the incident, specifically businesses in the Werribee area.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential crime report at crimestoppersvic.com.au
