He was given emergency first aid at the scene by members of the public and paramedics before being rushed to hospital for surgery.

Kavan spent four days in intensive care but could not be saved and his life support machine was switched off on Saturday, August 25.

Four arrests have been made so far over his death but nobody has yet been charged.

Ahmed Farrah is on the run

An 18-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder 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 want to trace 29-year-old Ahmed Farrah over the killing and a £5,000 reward for information leading to his arrest has been offered by Crimestoppers.

It is believed he could hold vital information about the knife attack but is said to be actively evading arrest.

Farrah, who has links to Broomhall and is also known as Reggie, has been described as '˜key' to police enquiries.

Detectives have warned that anyone found shielding him faces prosecution.

Anyone with information should call South Yorkshire Police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
