Bourke Street 'Trolleyman' Wanted By Police
A homeless man hailed Melbourne's "trolleyman" is wanted over a string of burglaries and breaching his bail conditions.
Michael Rogers, 46, used a shopping trolley to ram Hassan Khalif Shire Ali as police tried to disarm the Somali-born radical in last Friday's Bourke Street terror attack.
But a week later, police are on Mr Rogers' trail over criminal matters.
"Police are seeking the whereabouts of a 46-year-old man of no fixed address in relation to a number of recent burglaries in the Melbourne CBD and St Kilda areas and breach of bail conditions," the force said in a statement on Thursday night.
More than $143,000 has been donated by the community to help Mr Rogers since Saturday.
The National Homeless Collective, who set-up the fundraiser, states the money will be held in a trust fund for him and an accountancy firm has offered to oversee it and give financial advice.
“I’m gonna share it around. I’ve already told the Salvos, I’ll take a select few out to restaurants - I’ll pay for everything,” he said.
