Tough new bail laws in Vic before Xmas

AAP logoAAP 22/11/2016

Tougher bail laws will be in force before Christmas, according to Victoria's attorney-general.

He made the statement after an off-duty policeman suffered a severed nerve and lost all feeling above his eyebrows after he was stabbed between the eyes during a violent home invasion in Melbourne.

Attorney-General Martin Pakula says the government is "fast tracking" the laws which create new home invasion and carjacking offences that include a presumption against bail.

A 19-year-old has been arrested over the attack and will face court on Thursday.
