Police said in a statement on Monday that officers had been called to St Kilda Beach on Saturday afternoon amid reports of two drunk girls harassing other people.

“One of the girls approached an officer in a threatening manner. She did not stop when he asked her to,” police said.

“The action used by the officer is deemed appropriate in relation to the aggressive behaviour by the female.

“The girls continued to act in an aggressive manner, so the officer deployed OC foam to subdue them.”
