Man On The Run After Bayswater Bomb Squad Call Out

A woman has been arrested and a man is on the run after suspicious items were found inside a car in Melbourne, prompting a response from the bomb squad.

Police say they spotted the pair's Toyota Echo, which had false number plates, left vacant on the Mountain Highway at Bayswater just after 2.30am on Thursday, with a "number of suspicious items" inside.

The woman was later found and arrested, while a man is still on the run, and the Mountain Highway remains closed between Scoresby Road and High Street as the bomb squad investigates.
