A teenager has been arrested over the murder of an aspiring lawyer who was attacked as he went to buy a bagel.
The 17-year-old boy was held on Tuesday over the fatal stabbing of Sven Badzak, 22, who died in an unprovoked assault in Kilburn, north-west London, on Saturday.
Mr Badzak, who was working for his father's construction company and hoped to do a law conversion course, was waiting outside a bagel shop with a friend when the pair were attacked.
As they were chased they became separated, and Mr Badzak fell to the ground and was stabbed multiple times.
His 16-year-old friend also suffered multiple stab injuries but managed to escape into a shop in Willesden Lane, and is currently in a stable condition in hospital.
Mr Badzak's mother, a former Conservative Party activist, called on the Prime Minister to help ensure her son's killers are caught.
Jasna Badzak said her son had met Boris Johnson and other well-known Conservative politicians when he was younger, through her campaigning work with the party.
