The victim of a fatal stabbing in Sheffield city centre has been named as Calvin Clarke.

Mr Clarke, aged 45, suffered wounds to his upper chest in the attack on Dixon Lane, off Castlegate, last Friday afternoon and was taken to the Northern General Hospital, but later died on Tuesday afternoon.

Police have not yet revealed any more details about Mr Clarke or where he was from.

Two men have already appeared at Sheffield Magistrates’ Court charged in connection with the case.

Duncan Orlett, 39, of Harborough Close, Manor Park, was remanded in custody charged with causing grievous bodily harm to Mr Clarke.

A second man, Mark Walker, 18, of Kimberworth Park Road, Rotherham, has been charged with assisting an offender and was granted conditional bail.

A third man, Mustafa Hamdoon, also 18, has since been arrested and charged with assisting an offender.

He has been remanded in custody by Sheffield magistrates.

Police said they are reviewing charges after Mr Clarke’s death.

Meanwhile, a post mortem examination has concluded Mr Clarke’s death was due to stab wounds.

A South Yorkshire Police spokeswoman said officers are still keen to hear from anyone with information about the incident or anyone who witnessed it.

A spokeswoman said: “Any witnesses or anyone with information about the incident is urged to contact South Yorkshire Police on 101, quoting incident number 845 of September 27, or ring Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”

Mr Clarke was found with stab wounds at about 4.50pm last Friday by a member of the public.

He was given emergency first aid by police officers at the scene before paramedics arrived.
