AN arrest has been made in connection with the murder of 18-year-old Kieran Crump Raiswell.
A 26-year-old man from Bracknell, Berkshire, was arrested on suspicion of murder on January 20 and remains in police custody.
Kieran died from stab wounds after being attacked as he walked down Upper Chorlton Road, Old Trafford, on January 16.
Officers and paramedics attended the incident, which took place at around 2.20pm. He was taken to hospital but later died from his injuries.
A post mortem examination concluded that he died from a stab wound to the chest.
Det Ch Ins Peter Marsh, from Greater Manchester Police’s major incident team, said: "We have made an arrest but the investigation is continuing.
"I still want to hear from you if you saw Kieran walking along Upper Chorlton Road on Wednesday afternoon or if you saw anyone acting suspiciously."
Kieran, who was from Chorlton, has been described as quiet and easy going by his family and was planning to begin a degree at Sheffield Hallam University in September.
He played for Sale Cricket Club, was a keen Manchester City supporter and also helped to coach at his younger brother’s football club.
The gap year student was walking towards Manchester city centre last Wednesday when he was attacked.
He was wearing an electric blue hooded bubble jacket, dark blue jeans and Nike blue trainers.
He was also carrying a black rucksack with a multi coloured Aztec print and was wearing head phones.
Police have released CCTV footage showing his final movements which can be viewed at @Messengernews_.
