Kavan Brissett was stabbed to death

Passers-by and medics battled to save the young boxer who underwent emergency surgery, but he died in hospital four days later.

The stabbing is being treated as a '˜targeted' attack.

Ahmed Farrah is wanted for questioning

An 18-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder following the attack and three boys - two aged 17 and one aged 16 - were arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to rob.

They have all been bailed pending further enquiries.

Detectives are still trying to trace 29-year-old Ahmed Farrah, known as Reggie, who is believed to hold vital information over the stabbing.

He has connections to Broomhall in Sheffield as well as Cardiff in Wales.
