Detectives looking for a man in connection to the death of Kavan Brissett in Sheffield have today released CCTV footage as their efforts to trace him continue.

Kavan, 21, was stabbed once in the chest on Tuesday 14 August during an altercation near to Langsett Walk, Sheffield. He was taken to hospital but sadly died four days later (Saturday 18 August) as a result of his injuries.

Since then, a dedicated team of officers have been working hard to identify those involved, bring the person responsible to justice and provide answers for his family.

As part of that work, officers have previously issued an appeal to trace Ahmed Farrah, 30, who they need to speak to in connection to Kavan’s death.

Farrah, also known as Reggie, is from the Broomhall area but also has links to Cardiff.

Detective Chief Inspector Jude Ashmore, leading the investigation, said: “My appeal today is simple - someone knows where Farrah is, or where he has been staying. Farrah knows he is wanted by police and I do believe there are people who have information as to where he could be but haven’t yet come forward.

“I’d urge those people to think of Kavan’s family, who are so desperately seeking answers about what happened to him. Put yourself in their shoes, if it was your loved one you too would want answers and we need people to keep speaking to us.

“The footage we have released today shows Farrah, on the night of Kavan’s death, walking towards the Hallamshire Hospital and attending the Minor Injuries Clinic. He was treated for facial injuries, which we believe he sustained earlier that evening near to Langsett Walk. 

“Farrah returned to the hospital the following morning on Wednesday 15 August but it is also possible that he sought treatment somewhere else in the days after what happened. 

“Did you see him that evening or the following day? Do you know where he went afterwards?

“Please contact us if you have any information that could assist with our enquiries. If you don’t feel comfortable speaking to police, you can also speak to Crimestoppers anonymously.”

If you see Farrah, please call 999 straight away. If you have any other information about where he might be, or relating to Kavan’s death, please call either 101 quoting incident number 827 of 14 August 2018 or speak to officers in the incident room on 01709 443507.
