Prior to the apparent adoption of the word by chavs, a "random" was a slang term used to refer to a person who was clearly and obviously out of place in a particular milieu and whose presence was therefore questioned. Usually a neutral to negative connotation.
A: Who was that guy in the glasses and tweed jacket who showed up at our sorority meeting?
B: Clearly some random.
Some random dressed in a clown suit just ran across the quad mooning people.
