Marcus Ramsay, aged 35, was stabbed to death last August and two 17-year-old boys, who cannot be named for legal reasons, have been charged with murder.

They are due to appear at Sheffield Crown Court over the death later this year.

But as the police probe into the killing continues, detectives working on the case have released images of a man they want to trace over the fatal attack in Horninglow Road, Firth Park, in the early hours of Saturday, August 8.

Detectives investigating a murder in Sheffield have released images of a man they want to trace

Detective Chief Inspector Mark Oughton, the senior investigating officer for the murder probe, said it is vital all witnesses come forward to help officers piece together the full circumstances surrounding the stabbing.

“As we continue to build up a full picture of exactly what happened in the lead-up to Mr Ramsay’s death, it is imperative that we speak to everyone we can who was there that evening,” he said.

“To that end, we are releasing an image of one man who was there that evening and captured on camera. We are yet to identify and speak to this individual about what he witnessed that night.

“We believe the information he holds could assist the ongoing investigation and it’s important he comes forward and speaks with us as soon as possible.”
