South Australian fugitive wanted for attempted murder arrested in Melbourne’s northern suburbs

Gang Crime Squad detectives, with the assistance of the dog squad, executed a search warrant at a Peppercorn Parade address in Epping, arresting a 23-year-old South Australian man this morning.

His arrest follows a brawl at a licensed premises on Grenfell Street in Adelaide on Sunday, March 13 where several victims were stabbed or assaulted with weapons.

Knives and a machete were used and six were taken to hospital as a result of the brawl.

Detectives from South Australia Police’s Operation MELD Taskforce will arrive in Melbourne tomorrow to apply for his extradition.

He will face Melbourne Magistrates’ Court later today.
