Sheffield murder suspect evading police

A man wanted in connection with a murder in Sheffield has been evading arrest.

Ahmed Farrah, 29, is wanted for questioning in relation to the murder of 21-year-old Kavan Brissett.

Mr Brissett died in hospital on 18 August last year four days after being stabbed in the chest near Langsett Walk, Sheffield.

Detective Chief Inspector Jude Ashmore, the Senior Investigating Officer on the case said police efforts to find and arrest Farrah, known to frequent the Broomhall area of Sheffield, are ongoing.

She emphasised that anyone who has seen or spoken to Farrah recently should contact the police and noted that anyone who is letting Farrah stay with them, or helping him to evade arrest, is committing a criminal offence.

“Farrah knows he is wanted and is deliberately avoiding police and I’d ask anyone who has any information, and Farrah himself, to think about Kavan’s family and the pain they are suffering. Do the right thing and contact police,” she said.

If you see Farrah, please call 999. For any other information pleased call either 101 or the incident room to speak to detectives directly on 01709 443507.
