Bourke Street's Trolley Man Has Handed Himself Into Police

Michael Rogers has been hailed as a hero for ramming the knife-wielding attacker in Melbourne's Bourke Street with a trolley

A homeless man who used his shopping trolley to try to ram a knife-wielding attacker in Melbourne has been charged with offences including burglary and theft.

Michael Rogers, the so-called "trolley man", drew widespread praise for pushing the trolley repeatedly at Hassan Khalif Shire Ali as the 30-year-old man attempted to stab police.

The act also brought him to the attention of police who wanted to speak to him for a series of burglaries in St Kilda and the CBD.

Earlier this week, Stolzenberg hit back at critics who said Rogers wasn't worthy of the funds people raised for him.

Police prosecutor Paul Bush opposed bail saying Rogers posed an unacceptable risk of reoffending and that his criminal "priors" spoke for themselves.

Appearing at the Melbourne Magistrates' Court on Saturday, Rogers was granted bail under the condition that he must report to police daily, abide by a curfew, undertake drug screenings, and a court program to help with substance abuse.

For two days, Paradise police Officer Matthew Gates searched through ash and collapsed buildings for the remains of a woman. These horses have unusual temporary stables at the lifeguard towers on a beach in Malibu as a result of the Woolsey Fire.

"We have to remember these were things that happened prior to Friday as well", she said.

"This is a unique and incredible opportunity for this man to access supports that can only assist him to engage in meaningful rehabilitation", she told the court.

"He's still the same person as before last night's newsbreak". "They gave him the opportunity to turn his life around". "And I did that motion about... quite a number of times, but it just wasn't getting him down", he said.

"I'm grateful, but I'm not in the same league as others".

The $106,000 (AUD 145,000) raised will be held in a trust account for Rogers, the charity said, to ensure he is "well taken care of and guided financially as he moves forward".

But he has been barred from entering Melbourne's city centre under the conditions of his bail.
