Detectives said he was ‘blocked’ in and attacked as he tried to get out of his car.

He was stabbed during the incident, suffering wounds to his face, head and upper body.

Two suspects have been charged with attempted murder - 17-year-old Asim Mohammed, of Swarcliffe Road, Darnall and Amir Khan, 23, of Britnall Street, Attercliffe.

Both have appeared before Sheffield magistrates and are due at Sheffield Crown Court later this month.

Now police want to trace four other men over the attack - three brothers and their father.

Detectives believe 66-year-old Araf Mohammed and his sons, Basharat Mohammed, 34, Nasarat Mohammed, 26, and Nasser Mohammed, 21, could hold vital information about the attack.

A South Yorkshire Police spokeswoman said: “Police are asking for the public’s help in locating four men who are wanted in connection with an incident in Darnall.

“At 2.20pm on Monday, August 11, a 23-year-old man was travelling in his car along Swarcliffe Road in Darnall when it is alleged that his vehicle was blocked and, as he got out of the vehicle, a number of men with weapons attacked him.
