Student murdered in London was Colombian, not Argentine
It was confirmed this afternoon that the 21-year-old student killed after being stabbed to death in north London last week, was not Argentine. Local press confirmed that the man was "Colombian," later ratified by the consul general to Argentina, Claudio Rojas in London.
The student was killed after being stabbed to death, following an argument with a gang of teenagers in north London, Scotland Yard informed today.
Steven Grisales was attacked on August 31 in the North London area of Edmonton after asking a group of young teenagers to stop throwing conkers at him, when he was making his way to Silver Street train station.
One of the gang members took out a knife and stabbed Grisales in the chest.
Grisales had arrived to London last July to begin an Architecture course at Westminster College, where he had been granted a scholarship.
After the attack, Grisales was taken to Royal London Hospital, where he died the following day.
Two fifteen year olds were being held in custody in a police station in north London after being arrested on Monday.
Another youth, aged nineteen, and a sixteen year old, were released on bail but will have to present before magistrates next month.
