POLICE have called for public assistance after two burglaries were committed on Portland primary schools this morning.
Sergeant Ray Hastings said the Palmer Street Primary School was broken into about 3am after the glass front door was smashed.
Offenders gained entry into the building and it is not known if anything was stolen.
"About 20 minutes later offenders used the same mode of entry at the North Portland Primary School," Sergeant Hastings said.
"The office area was ransacked but it is not known if anything was stolen. Police crime scene officers are expected to examine both schools this morning," he said.
Damage at the schools is expected to total up to $2000.
There was also a hit and run accident in Portland at about 5am this morning.
Sergeant Hastings said a white Toyota utility with four people onboard was involved in a single vehicle accident in Wyatt Street.
He said the ute collided with a wire fence and knocked down a star picket at a vacant block before being driven off.
A neighbour contacted police after seeing the vehicle drive off.
