Daniel Andrews hits back after Bec Judd claims she feels unsafe in her $7.3million mansion due to ‘home invasions at the hands of gangs’ in affluent Melbourne suburb

Daniel Andrews has responded to AFL WAG Rebecca Judd after she slammed his government for not doing enough to combat ‘rapes, bashings and home invasions’ in her suburb.

The Victorian Premier rubbished the mother-of-four’s claims on Sunday, insisting recent crime statistics in her affluent suburb of Brighton don’t support her fears.

‘I’m not interested in having an argument with Ms Judd,’ Mr Andrews told The Herald Sun.

‘I’m also obliged to point out though, I think there are more than 70 additional police in the Bayside area, and the most recent crime statistics released by an independent agency would not support those sweeping assessments about patterns of crime.’

On Thursday, Bec, 39, slammed Andrews’ government for not doing enough to combat ‘rapes, bashings and home invasions’ in her posh suburb.

She lives in a $7.3million mansion in Brighton in the city’s southeast with her husband, retired AFL star Chris Judd, and their four children.

Bec reposted CCTV footage of a group of young men lurking outside several properties in her affluent suburb and claimed it made her feel ‘unsafe’.

The teenagers, who were allegedly armed with knives, were captured lurking outside several properties in the Bayside area before crashing a stolen BMW into a tree.

The mother-of-four said the state government ‘don’t seem to care’ about the recent spike in crime and said she felt unsafe in her Brighton mansion.

‘So sick of the rapes, bashings and home invasions at the hands of the gangs in Bayside,’ Ms Judd wrote to Instagram on Thursday.

‘I personally know two women who have experienced home invasions in Brighton in the last few weeks while they were at home.’

Bec’s home boasts a gym, a tennis court that can be turned into ‘a footy oval or cricket pitch’, and a magnesium salt pool.

There is also a spacious wet bar complete with a snooker table and a bar.
