His family have released a tribute via the police force, saying: “Arman was only 19-years old when he passed away. He was a fun and happy soul who left a lasting impression to everyone he crossed paths with.

“Arman was an amazing son who prioritised his family, looked after his parents and was a role model to his younger siblings and those around him.

“He cared for his younger siblings like no other and will be forever remembered and missed by them. Arman was known to keep Islam close to his heart and we are very proud of his passion for his religion. He was quick to right a wrong and would lend a helpful hand to anyone who needed it.
