Copenhagen police this morning released the identity of the fourth suspect they believe is connected to the fatal stabbing of law student Jonas Thomsen Sekyere last week.

The suspect is 27-year-old Omar Hassan Sheik Muse who they describe as 182 cm tall, having a slight build and whose hair is short on the sides and longer on top.

Three other suspects have been arrested by police and were yesterday presented in court where they all denied involvement in the 21-year-olds death from stab wounds at a Copenhagen nightclub.

New reports suggest that there was more than one knife involved in the attack by the toilets of the nightclub Bakken and that Sekyere had also been stabbed in the back, as well as the chest.

Police say that their search for Muse has so far yielded no results which is why they decided to release his identity.

“Of course we have looked for him several different places, such as at his and his family’s addresses,” police spokesperson Jens Møller told Ekstra Bladet. “He knows we’re looking for him but because he has chosen not to turn himself in of his own free will we have chosen to release his identity.”

Members of the public with any information about the location of Muse are asked to contact police by calling 114.
