One of Australia's most wanted fugitives arrested over brother's death in Melbourne

One of Australia's most-wanted fugitives has been arrested in Melbourne’s CBD following an alleged assault.

Jonathan Dick, wanted over the February 2017 murder of his brother David Dick at Westfield Doncaster shopping centre, was arrested on Monday morning following the alleged assault on Hosier Lane.

The 41-year-old was arrested in relation to the existing warrant for murder and was taken to hospital under police guard.

Police were called to a car park on the corner of Flinders Street and Hosier Lane shortly before 7.50am following reports two men had restrained a third man.

It’s believed an assault occurred and all three parties suffered injuries.

Police said more information would be released when it was appropriate.

The arrest comes after a $100,000 reward was offered last year for Dick's capture.

Police had believed he was being sheltered – possibly in someone's home, or a hostel or boarding house – and getting by on cash-in-hand construction work.

Dick was also wanted for questioning over a hammer assault on a man at Keilor five months after his brother's murder.
