Man stabbed in night of violence in Sheffield released from hospital
A man stabbed in a night of violence on the streets of Sheffield has been released from hospital.
The man, in his early 20s, was one of two people stabbed when violence flared on Earl Marshal Road, Fir Vale and Kirton Road, Pitsmoor, on Thursday, May 13.
Police officers responded to reports of a group of men fighting but when they arrived those involved had fled.
One man – 22-year-old Armend Xhika, originally from Albania – was dropped off outside A&E at the Northern General Hospital by the driver of a car who left him there.
Medics raced to Armend’s aid and performed open heart surgery but he could not be saved.
A second man was treated for stab wounds and spent a number of days in hospital but has since been discharged.
Five arrests have been made as part of the murder probe so far but nobody has yet been charged.
