According to News.com.au, police have arrested a 20-year-old man in connection with the murder of Lauria Tagaloa outside the Fortitude Valley train station. The 24-year-old man was stabbed to death on Monday July 11th. Police charged the man with murder after they observed him involved in a disturbance on the Brisbane City Council CCTV system.

According to Inspector Sean Cryer, police were watching the city council’s CCTV when the murder took place. Early in the morning of October 8, Tagaloa was found lying on the ground, with blood surrounding him. He had been involved in a fight with another person, according to witnesses. A video taken at the scene of the crime seems to indicate that Tagaloa was involved in a confrontation with two groups of people.
The video shows that the altercation began with the two groups yelling at each other around 4am, before one man attacked another man (Tagaloa). Tagaloa can then be seen stumbling backwards and falling to the ground after receiving the blow.
On Monday night, Seyram Kwami Djentuh, 20, was arrested by police and charged with the murder of Tagaloa. A witness tried to give first aid to the 24-year-old man, who died from his wounds at the scene of the incident. However, according to News.com.au, Djentuh did not appear in court himself nor apply for bail in Brisbane Magistrates Court on Tuesday morning. The Mail reported that two other men, 20 and 21, are helping the police with their investigation and have not been charged yet. The matter was postponed until August 8.
