The victim of Saturday night's street attack has been named by his brother as Arkadiusz Jozwik, known fondly as Arek.

A 40-year-old man died in hospital after being attacked by mob of 20 teenagers in what is being treated by police as a hate crime. Another man was badly beaten.

Arkadiusz Jozwik, known fondly as Arek, was Polish, single and didn't have any children.

Paying tribute to Arek, his brother Radek, said: 'He really was a family person who spent a lot of time with my kids, he didn't have any kids but had been close with my kids.

'My kids have been with me in the hospital, crying all the time.'

Arek worked at a meat production plant in Harlow, Essex, along with his mother, after moving to the UK in 2012.



The identity of the second victim, who remains in hospital, is not yet clear.

The 40-year-old died last night at Addenbrooke's Hospital from his head injuries. His friend, 43, suffered hand fractures and bruising to the stomach.

Senior investigating officer Detective Inspector Al Pitcher, of the Kent and Essex serious crime directorate, said: 'This is now a murder investigation and our inquiries have quickly led to the arrest of five teenage boys.

'Following this vicious attack, a man has sadly lost his life and I urge anyone with information to contact us as soon as possible.'

Police will be carrying out extra patrols in the area to provide reassurance to the community.

Four 15-year-old boys and one 16-year-old boy, all from Harlow, were arrested on Monday on suspicion of attempted murder and then further arrested on suspicion of murder.

All five have been released on police bail pending further inquiries until October 7. A sixth boy, a 15-year-old from Harlow, was arrested on Tuesday afternoon on suspicion of murder and is awaiting questioning.
