Three teenagers have been arrested after they allegedly spat at police outside a Tarneit shopping centre.
Police were called to the shopping centre on Derrimut Road about 3pm on Wednesday and were confronted by several youths who allegedly threatened and spat at officers.
Two 18-year-old men, both from Tarneit, and a 17-year-old Point Cook boy were arrested at the scene.
"Two 18-year-old men are expected to be charged on summons with behaving in riotous manner and assault related offences," Leading Senior Constable Natalie Dean said.
The 17-year-old has already been charged with resisting arrest, assaulting police, riotous behaviour and other assault related offences, she said.
He was bailed to appear at a children's court at a later date.
