Man stabbed on Sheffield street dies in hospital

One photo, featuring a photo of the victim in his boxing gear, is accompanied by the message: "Rest in peace my brother! Will always love you. Thanks for everything you've done for me."

Another tribute reads: "Kav, you have been took way too soon and didn't deserve what happened.

"You are missed and loved by many. Everyone will always think about you and all the memories they shared with you.

"You was such a funny, kind and caring person. RIP."

A third says: "RIP Kav. Can't believe it. You've been taken too soon.

"There's so many cruel people in the world to do that to an innocent, loving person. You will be missed."

One note reads: "Kavan, one of my realest friends. So sad you're gone. Always be in our hearts."

And another says: "Kav, never will I forget the time we spent together. You had such a pure heart and it truly breaks me to be writing this."

Alongside the flowers is a cuddly Tigger toy from the Winnie the Pooh books.

Emergency services were called to Langsett Walk just before 6.45pm last Tuesday.

Police said he was taken to hospital to be treated for a suspected stab wound but his condition deteriorated and he died yesterday morning.

Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101, or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111, quoting the incident number 827 of August 14.
