Charges Upgraded Following Flinders St Incident

After the rampage 20 people were hospitalised including an off-duty police officer and Mr Noori

Three people are still in hospital following the attack.

The man accused of mowing down pedestrians outside Melbourne's Flinders Street Station in late December has had one of the charges levelled against him upgraded to murder. Crocaris passed away in hospital on December 29th as a result of injuries sustained in the incident.

Homicide Squad detectives filed it this afternoon at Melbourne Magistrate's Court, where the 32-year-old will appear again in May.

Victoria Police Prosecutor Senior Constable Amitoj Singh told the court in December Mr Noori drove the vehicle through the intersection "with the intention of killing or causing serious injury". An Afghan refugee with Australian citizenship, he has a history of drug abuse and mental health issues, and his lawyers have said Noori's mental impairment and fitness to plea would be explored as part of his defence.

Twenty people, including Noori and an off-duty police officer who arrested him, were hospitalised after the alleged rampage.

Antonios Crocaris was run down in the Melbourne CBD last week.

Six people died and dozens were injured in January when 27-year-old Dimitrious Gargasoulas allegedly drove through Bourke Street Mall.

Victoria Police have urged anyone that witnessed the incident and who feels they may require assistance in coping, to contact the Victims of Crime Helpline on 1800 819 817. The driver is accused of providing material support to the Islamic State group among other charges, including murder.
