But he was caught up in violence involving a group of men, with one brawl reported on Earl Marshal Road, in Fir Vale, and another on Kirton Road, Pitsmoor, a short time later.

Armend was dropped off outside A&E at the Northern General Hospital in a car which was then driven off while medics battled to revive him, but the young man could not be saved.

Mentor Selmani, age 27, from London, has been charged with grievous bodily harm with intent, violent disorder, possession of an offensive weapon and criminal damage as part of the police probe into Armend’s death.

He was arrested in Nottinghamshire earlier this week and has been remanded in custody ahead of a hearing at Sheffield Magistrates’ Court today.
