A second 14-year-old boy has been arrested on suspicion of murder after a man was hit by his own car during a robbery.
Mohammed Islam, 53, died from the impact, which happened while he was delivering food in Stockport on January 8.
The boy arrested today cannot be named due to his age.
Another 14-year-old boy was previously charged with murder, as well as numerous driving offences.
Mr Islam, who owned the Marple Spice restaurant in Marple and was known as Nowab Miah, was rushed to hospital but sadly died from his injuries two days later.
Chief Inspector Liam Boden of Greater Manchester Police said: ‘This was a tragic incident and my thoughts remain with Mohammed’s family and friends as they try to come to terms with their devastating loss.

‘Whilst we have made a further arrest, this investigation is still ongoing and I would urge anyone with information about what happened to get in touch with police as soon as you can.’
His heartbroken family, from Hyde, said they were left ‘devastated beyond belief’ after the ‘horrific’ crash.
They said in a statement: ‘Our family cannot begin to describe what losing our father has done to us.
‘The fact he was just in the wrong place at the wrong time and was taken from us so early leaves us devastated beyond belief.
‘Dad was everything you could ask for in a parent; a mentor, a role model – our best friend.
‘We shared everything with him and there was nothing we couldn’t tell him, that he couldn’t fix.
‘He was extremely loyal and nothing came between him and his family.’
Mr Miah’s family said his death had taken a particularly devastating toll on his wife and the pair were ‘inseparable since the day they met’.
The family said: ‘Our mum is overcome with grief; dad was her life partner, her best friend and her rock… we don’t think she will ever be able to move on from this tragedy.’

They continued: ‘To our dad, family and the community was everything. He dedicated his time to helping others and he was loved and respected by everyone who knew him.’
Mr Miah is understood to have been an executive committee member at the Jamia Mosque and Islamic Centre.
A GoFundMe set up to raise money for his family has raised more than £12,000 in donations since Monday, with his son saying it ’emphasises how truly special our dad was’.
Son Shaf Nowab said the funds would be used to feed poor children in Bangladesh – something his father ‘always did’ and thanked the community for coming together.
