£20k reward to solve murder of Mohammed Al-Araimi, stabbed to death outside Harrods

Police have released CCTV footage and offered a £20,000 reward for information connected to a man who was stabbed to death outside Harrods in December.

The CCTV image above shows two men that the Met believe are connected to the attack on Mohammed Al-Araimi.

The reward of up to £20,000 is being offered for information leading to the identification, arrest and prosecution of the people responsible for the attack on Mr Al-Araimi and his friend, who was also stabbed.

Mr Al-Araimi, a student at King’s College, had been out for a meal with a friend at a restaurant in Pavilion Road, Knightsbridge.

After leaving the restaurant they walked along Basil Street, heading towards Sloane Street when they were approached by two suspects and attacked at around 11.55pm on December 5.

The CCTV image released shows the two men the police are looking for, walking together in Knightsbridge in the early hours of December 6.

Detective Chief Inspector Andy Partridge said: “The attack on Mohammed and his friend was a planned robbery that was truly shocking and extremely violent.

“I am convinced that the public can provide names for those males featured in the CCTV images we have released today.

“My team have secured hundreds of hours of CCTV footage. The suspects involved in the attack travelled on foot from the Edgware Road/Marble Arch area of London to Knightsbridge prior to carrying out the attack. This location is therefore potentially very significant, with the persons we are seeking to identify having a connection to this area.

“There is a substantial reward being offered in this case and I ask that anyone who knows the identity of the two males makes contact with my team. All calls will be treated in the strictest confidence.”

So far there have been no arrests.

Anyone who may know the identity of the two men, or who has information that may assist police, is asked to contact the incident room on 020 8358 0300 or call police on 101 quoting reference Cad 3/6Dec. You can also tweet @MetCC.
