Two men and one teenager have been arrested by counter-terrorism police after raids in Melbourne’s north.

Police allege a 19-year-old Epping man attempted to engage in a terrorist act. He is currently being interviewed by police in relation to suspected terrorism offences.

A 20-year-old Epping man also remains in police custody while a 16-year-old Pascoe Vale youth was released pending further enquiries.

Victoria Joint Counter Terrorism Team, which includes officers from the Australian Federal Police and Victoria Police, executed two warrants in Epping and Pascoe Vale on Wednesday morning.

Investigators say they do not expect any further arrests.
