(Newser) – The international manhunt for Luka Rocco Magnotta ended today at an Internet café in Berlin, where police nabbed the porn actor/alleged killer, sources tell German newspaper Bild. Magnotta, who is accused of killing and dismembering a man on camera and then mailing the body parts to Canadian political parties, was last seen in Paris, but French authorities had come to suspect he had hopped a bus to Berlin, the National Post reports.

Authorities caught Luka after someone in the café recognized him and tipped them off, police said, according to CNN. He offered no resistance as he was taken into custody.
