Melbournians Are Doing ONE THING To Protect Themselves

Melbournians are reportedly buying sports stores out of baseball bats as they try to protect themselves as the number of burglaries rise in the city.

Over the last few weeks, Melbourne has had a number of home invasions and burglaries which have left the cities residents scared for their own safety.

One sports store has said they are ''completely sold out of baseball bats and it isn't because there is an influx of baseball players.''

Other products that have been selling too are spear guns, hair spray and golf clubs, all of which are being bought to help people protect themselves.

Victoria Police are urging people not to take the law into their own hands and dial 000 if they are suspicious of any activity in their area.
