Man wearing just underwear reportedly spotted using phone in Hillview drain
According to TODAY, police officers carried out a five-hour search in Hillview after a man was spotted in a drain along Hume Avenue.
50-year-old Victor Ilano was reportedly out for a walk at about 6.30am on Thursday (25 May) when he noticed “a light shining from a hole in the drainage cover”.
He soon realised there was a man inside the drain and that the light seemingly came from his phone. At the time, the man appeared to be shining his phone at a luggage bag.
Initially, Mr Ilano was hesitant to call the police, thinking the suspicious individual could’ve been a worker carrying out repair works.
However, he soon noticed that the man was wearing nothing but his underwear.
After consulting a jogger, Mr Ilano eventually called the police at about 6.39am.
Police officers arrived at the scene at about 6.50am and instructed passers-by to stay away from the location.
