DETECTIVES have arrested a 19-year-old man in connection with the murder of Nahid Al-Manea. 

The man, from Colchester, was picked up by police in connection with a separate assault in the early hours of this morning after a female jogger fought off a man who approached her and tried to grab her in Peache Road, in the Hythe area of Colchester. 

After being questioned, he was arrested this afternoon in connection with the investigation into Nahid's death. 

He remains in custody for questioning.
