A multi-million dollar mansion was decimated by up to 60 teenagers after an Airbnb booking turned into a wild party that spilled out onto a quiet suburban street.
Police allege the teenagers swarmed the Hawthorn East property on Saturday before destroying walls, door fittings and spray painting in every room. The group then allegedly assaulted neighbours who tried to get the rowdy group to calm down.
Some of the graffiti discovered at the home reportedly included references to the 'Apex Gang' and 'Block Boyz', leading police to believe some of the teens were allegedly affiliated with the notorious street gang, The Australian reported.

Neighbours told the publication they are frustrated that police did seemingly little to stop the out-of-control party before the alleged assaults took place.
'There was about 50 to 60 Sudanese youths outside in the street … screaming and yelling and fighting each other, we called the police three times,' a neighbour, who asked to remain nameless, said.
'We reckon everyone in the street called them two or three times. We've never seen anything like it.'
The woman's husband said he saw police arrive at the property on a number of occasions, but didn't appear to venture inside.
'Maybe they were overwhelmed or under-resourced, but they just watched, the final time they turned up, they did bring the dog squad,' he said.
However, no arrests were made and police said no officers witnessed any fighting.
