Detectives have arrested a man over the savage bashing and stabbing of an 18-year-old German tourist in Melbourne’s north yesterday morning.

Heavily-armed special operations police supported plain-clothes officers as they took a 29-year-old man into custody at a Brooklyn home about 1.30pm today.

The German tourist received a fractured skull, a broken leg and arm, fractured ribs and upper-body stab wounds in the attack, police said.

Today’s arrest was executed by Victoria Police’s ‘Santiago’ taskforce, set up to tackle a series of unsolved shooting crimes across Melbourne.
