Detectives investigating the fatal stabbing of a teenager in Luton have made a further arrest.
A 19-year-old man from the town was last week arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to commit grievous bodily harm and possession of a knife.
The arrest was made by detectives investigating the death of 16-year-old Ashraf Habimana, who died from stab wounds in Luton in September.
Six teenagers have previously been charged with murder in connection to Ashraf’s death.
Detective Inspector Graham Newton, from the Bedfordshire Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Major Crime Unit, said: “Shocking, unacceptable violence led to the death of a young man from our community with his whole life ahead of him.
“We are determined to bring anyone involved to justice and send a strong, unequivocal message that violent attitudes and behaviour of this nature will not be tolerated.”
The 19-year-old was released on bail on Wednesday (10 January), pending further enquiries.
