By Dean Wilkins

A man has been arrested on suspicion of murdering Manchester student Kieran Crump-Raiswell, who died after a horror street stabbing last week.

Officers are questioning a 26-year-old man from Bracknell, Berkshire, after the young Manchester City fan was knifed in broad daylight at around 2.20pm last Wednesday, January 16.

Kieran was found with a single stab wound to the chest he was rushed to hospital where he sadly died from his injuries.

Officers are still continuing their investigations, they originally believed the attacker to be a teenager, aged between 16 and 18, and are still appealing to the public for help.

Detective Chief Inspector 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.”

A post mortem examination has concluded that Kieran died from a stab wound to the chest.

Kieran was taking a gap year before going on to study history at Sheffield Hallam University – he was believed to have been handing out CVs on the day of his attack.

Anyone with information is asked to call police on 0161 856 4711 or contact the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
