Crimestoppers rewards prompt callsÂ in hunt for Sheffield men wanted over murders
Offers ofÂ rewards for information leading detectives to two Sheffield men wanted over murders haveÂ prompted some calls.
Crimestoppers is offering rewards of Â£5,000 for information leading to the arrest of aÂ man wanted over a fatal stabbing in Sheffield and to the arrest of a city man wanted over a brutal attack in Cleethorpes.
Ahmed Farrah is wanted by detectives investigating the murder ofÂ 21-year-old Kavan Brissett, who was stabbed to death in an alleyway off Langsett Walk, Upperthorpe,Â in August.
They believe theÂ 29-year-old could hold vital information about the killing.
Farrah, who is also known as Reggie and has links to Broomhall, is said to know he is wanted and to beÂ deliberately evading arrest. Four arrests have been made so far over Kavan's deathÂ but nobody has yet been charged.
An 18-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder and three boys -Â two aged 17 and one aged 16 - were arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to rob.
Crimestoppers isÂ also offering a cashÂ reward for information leading to theÂ arrest of Sheffield man Abdi Ali, who is wanted over a murder in Cleethorpes.
The 28-year-old is wanted for questioning over the murder ofÂ Shaun Lyall, 47, who was attacked in his home in July.
