The vehicle was stolen from Whitecross’ Croydon home overnight, with Nine News reporting that the men broke into Whitecross’ home at around 2am while he and his family slept, taking a set of keys, before stealing the car.
The vehicle was pursued by Police on Tuesday morning, before it was eventually torched and dumped at The Glen Shopping Centre, in Melbourne’s south east.
The men tried to escape on foot, before three men were arrested by Police.
A fourth man is believed to still be at large.
“It was pretty scary,” Whitecross told 9NEWS.
“By the time the dogs started barking, the car was off so I didn’t get a real good look at them… The adrenaline took over and I was straight down the stairs.
“They tried to get out of the front door, then basically supermanned through the front window.”
