Detectives hunting a Sheffield man and his three sons turned to Crimewatch to issue a nationwide appeal for help in tracing them on Thursday night.

Araf Mohammed, aged 66, and his sons Basharat Mohammed, 34, Nasarat Mohammed, 26, and Nasser Mohammed, 21 are wanted over an attack which left a Sheffield man fighting for life. The 23-year-old man was attacked after he got out of his car after being blocked by another vehicle on Swarcliffe Road, Darnall.

During the incident, which happened at around 2.20pm on Monday, August 11, a number of men with weapons attacked the victim. He suffered 16 stab wounds to his face, head and upper body and was taken to hospital, where his condition was initially described as life-threatening.

The attackers were armed with knives, a baseball bat and a hammer.

Detective Constable Rachael Burgin, who is leading the police investigation, said: “I am confident that someone, somewhere, knows where they are or could have information to help our investigation.”

Crimewatch said: “We’ve had lots of calls received about the whereabouts of Araf Mohammed and his sons, including sightings which are being followed up. There are some potential new leads.”
