A man has been arrested on suspicion of murder after a teenager was killed in Stevenage this weekend, apparently on his way home from his prom.

Kajetan Migdal, 18, was attacked around 11.20pm on Friday night and died in hospital hours later.

His family have paid tribute to a “joyful young man” after the Cuttys Lane incident – and set up a GoFundMe page for travel and funeral expenses.

Mr Migdal, said to be an animal and dance lover, was taken to Lister Hospital where he died early Saturday morning.

Hertfordshire Police said a man of the same age has now been arrested.

On the donation page, the boy’s aunt, Corrie Everett, from the US, wrote: “My handsome, talented, intelligent nephew, Kajetan Migdal, was murdered… on his way home from prom.

“As a family, we are completely shocked and devastated by this great loss.
