The electorate office of Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews has been vandalised and spray-painted with slogans calling for him to be sacked.

It’s the second time in less than a month that his office has been targeted.

Victoria Police have cordoned off the suburban Noble Park office after the incident on the night of Oct 14.

“Sack Dan” was spray-painted across the front of the office. A brick is believed to have been thrown at a window, cracking it.

Police are calling it a criminal damage incident.

“Investigators were told an office building on Princes Highway was graffitied and damaged by an unidentified person,” they said in a statement.

There is growing frustration in Melbourne over the continuation of tough coronavirus restrictions in the city.

While the premier has said some of those measures will be eased on Monday, it won’t be as many as first hoped.

Andrews is also under pressure over a hotel quarantine program believed to have sparked a second wave of infections, leading to the deaths of hundreds of Victorians and the enforcement of restrictions in the regions and metropolitan Melbourne.

Late last month, slogans including “tyrant”, “liar”, “scum”, “lackey” and “CCP” (Chinese Communist Party) were spray painted on the windows of  Andrews’ office.
