Jonathan Dick, 41, is suspected of killing his brother, David Dick, with a sword in Melbourne in 2017. He was arrested in the city centre on Monday after a fight in a laneway which allegedly involved him and two others.

Last year, police issued a A$100,000 (£56,000; $68,000) reward for information leading to his arrest. They had been searching since February 2017 when his 36-year-old brother was fatally injured at Westfield Doncaster - one of the nation's biggest shopping centres. The victim was attacked as he stepped out of a lift in a car park.

Police at the time described the attack as "brutal", and issued a murder warrant for Jonathan Dick after he was identified in CCTV footage. They have not provided any information on motivation. Despite occasional reported sightings, he had evaded authorities since. Mr Dick was listed one of Australia's 10 most wanted fugitives and authorities had issued warnings to the public not to approach him.
