Arsim Kelmendi made his first appearance on 13 June 2014. He is portrayed by Tomasz Aleksander.


Arsim is an unlicensed taxi driver who drove Lucy Beale and Jake Stone to George Street on the night that Lucy was murdered. He tells Lauren Branning that Jake was too drunk to stand and he advised Lucy to leave him in the gutter.

In July 2015, he comes forward as a witness in Lucy's murder, saying he saw Ben Mitchell with her. DI Samantha Keeble promises to help with his immigration tribunal appeal, and as they discuss this, Arsim sees Max Branning arrive at the Walford Police Station and also recognises him as someone who was with Lucy that night.
