3aw news

Police have arrested Jonathan Dick.

3AW Breakfast was alerted to a heavy police presence in the CBD on Monday morning, with reports Dick had been arrested after more than two years on the run from police.

Victoria Police has since confirmed the man to be Dick.

They 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, with all three men suffering injuries.

The exact circumstances leading up to the incident are yet to be determined.

Police believe at least one of the men is known to Dick.

He’s been arrested in relation to the existing warrant for the murder of his brother David and was taken to hospital under police guard.

David Dick was slain with a sword at a Doncaster shopping centre in 2017.

Dick’s mother, Carol, said she was “overwhelmed” by today’s news.

“I would like to thank everyone who has given me so much support over the past two and a half years, particularly my family and friends,” she said in a statement.

“To those family and friends who have tried to contact me today, I will call when I feel able to.

“I’m overwhelmed by the news this morning that my son has been found.

“All I ever wanted was for him to be found alive and I feel comfort in that.

“I would also like to thank Victoria Police who have always been here for me and kept me updated. I have never felt alone during this because of their support.”
