A King’s College student who was stabbed to death in London while returning home from a restaurant with a friend was “entirely blameless”, police said.
Mohammed Abdullah Al Araimi, 20, was stabbed near Harrods in Knightsbridge just after midnight on Friday, December 6.
The politics and economics student, who was an Omani national living in London, was pronounced dead at the scene shortly before 12.40am, the Met Police said.
A post-mortem examination at Westminster Mortuary gave his cause of death as a stab wound.
Police have said they believe he was killed during a robbery. His 20-year-old friend was also injured in the attack and taken to hospital for treatment. He has since been discharged, police said.
The student was one of three people fatally stabbed in London in the space of just 24 hours.
Detective chief inspector Andy Partridge, who is leading the investigation, said: “Mohammed and his friend were returning home from a restaurant when they were approached and assaulted by two male suspects on Basil Street at the junction of Pavilion Road.
