CCTV released to try and find murder suspect

Footage of a man wanted in connection with a Sheffield murder has been released by South Yorkshire Police today.

Kavan Brissett, 21, was stabbed in the chest on 14 August, after an altercation near Langsett Walk, Sheffield. He was taken to hospital but died of his injuries four days later.

As part of the investigation, police issued an appeal to find Ahmed Farrah, 30, who they need to speak to in connection to the murder.

Despite the appeal and a £5,000 reward offered by Crimestoppers, attempts so far have been unsuccessful, leading to the release of CCTV footage by the police to try and find him.

Mr 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 shows Farrah walking towards Hallamshire Hospital and going to the Minor Injuries Clinic, where he was treated for facial injuries believed to have been sustained from the altercation.

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

If you have any information please call either 101 quoting incident number 827 of 14 August 2018 or speak to officers in the incident room on 01709 443507.

Crimestoppers have also extended their reward in relation to Farrah. To provide information to them anonymously please call 0800 555111.
