He became separated from his pals and was cornered at the mouth of the alleyway before being stabbed in the chest.

Mamoud staggered into the alleyway but was attacked a second time, leaving him unconscious on the ground.
His attackers fled and the teenager died at the scene despite the efforts of paramedics who tried to revive him. 
A police spokesman said four boys, two aged 15 and two 17-year-olds, were previously arrested in connection with the incident but have since been released with no further action.
Three of the boys who were initially arrested suffered minor injuries in the incident and a 16-year-old boy was found close to the scene with potentially life-changing injuries.
