A 10-year-old girl, 25-year-old man and a woman, 32, died at the scene after Gargasoulas sped along Bourke Street Mall and a 33-year-old man died in hospital on Friday night. A three-month-old baby boy also died later in hospital.
Hundreds watched as Gargasoulas performed burnouts on Flinders Street but only the two Tongans intervened.
Tevita Mahina, 17, and Isaac Tupou, 17, were heading to a baseball game when they came across the incident.
“We heard a lot of screeching. It was echoing. And it got a lot of people’s attention so we went to have a look. Then we saw a car doing donuts”, Tupou told 7News.
“This has to take action no one was doing”.
“He looks like he gonna hurt people”.
“The car came at us. And I stepped to the side and swung the bat, pretty much, and then he came back and chased us…” Mahina told the News.
Gargasoulas would face murder charges, Australian media reported.
The 26-year-old was known to police and had been driving erratically around Melbourne after allegedly stabbing his brother that morning. Source: Kaniva News
