Rock singer's son killed in Sydney attack

It is believed the victim is the son of Australian rock icon Angry Anderson

A man has died in what police are describing as a "brutal bloody attack" on the Northern Beaches this morning.

It is further understood the 20-year-old plumbing apprentice only became aware of the violent incident when he woke from the alleged psychosis after being taken to hospital.

Paramedics and police from the Northern Beaches Police Area Command found the man, believed to be in his 20s, unconscious with serious head injuries.

"The 26-year-old died at the scene and he is a local and the 20-year-old offender was arrested and taken to Manly Police Station", Det Insp Boutouridis said.

Reports have suggested that Flame and Liam Anderson were good friends, with the pair posting photos of each other on their social media pages and the two attended Sydney's Defqon.1 festival in September.

An application to carry out forensic testing on Flame has been lodged to be heard at Manly Local Court on Monday.

On Sunday afternoon, a statement was issued on behalf of Angry, confirming Liam's death and asking the media and public to respect the family's privacy.

Confused witnesses mistook over half an hour of Liam Anderson's cries for help as just the noises of the first 'boot camp' exercisers of a Sydney summer.

Police say the alleged attacker's arrest was hard, with officers using capsicum spray and "significant force" to arrest him.

"It's still early in the investigation but it's quite possible, yes", he said.

"It all Started With One Song".

Violence and drug culture is not unique to Australia.

"I just heard a lot of, say for at least half an hour, moaning", the woman told 7 News.

"Then we found out it was obviously him being kicked or stabbed".

She said it was frightful to think that a murder occurred so close to her home.

Emergency services were called to the park on the corner of Pavilion Street and Bridge Road about 6am on Sunday, following reports of an assault.

"I went downstairs, saw the police auto coming and arresting the guy, telling him to get down", Andy said.

Police say that Liam and the alleged attacker knew each other, but they have not yet determined a motive.

"I don't know the circumstances that led to them being at the reserve this morning, that's why I'm appealing to the community to assist us with those inquiries".

"I want to deliver a strong message that this was not a random attack, we have one offender in custody and there are none outstanding."
