ITV News Middle East News Editor Lutfi Abu Aun reported Ramadan Abedi's arrest by masked gunmen who arrived in two cars, citing eyewitnesses.
Mr Abedi earlier claimed his son is innocent, telling The Associated Press by telephone from Tripoli: "We don't believe in killing innocents. This is not us."
Attacker Salman Abedi's younger and older brothers are understood to be among a handful of people arrested in the wake of Monday's bombing.
New CCTV of the Manchester bomber Salman Abedi has been released by police.
The younger brother of the Manchester bomber has said Salman Abedi was radicalised online in Britain.
