Man still wanted over rape of woman in Sheffield

Farrah is said to know he is wanted for questioning but is actively evading arrest.

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 following the murder but were not charged.

Fahim Hersi

A Crimestoppers reward of £5,000 is available for information leading to Farrah's arrest but anyone who spots him should call 999 immediately.

The following month, 22-year-old Fahim Hersi was stabbed to death in Sheffield and his killer also remains at large.

Fahim, from Broomhall, was knifed during a fight outside Cineworld on the Centertainment complex at Attercliffe on Friday, September 21.

A second man, aged 21, was also stabbed during the incident but survived.

Gary Dean

He was one of a number of suspects arrested on suspicion of murder in the aftermath of the murder but nobody has been charged.

Detectives are not treating the murder as pre-planned.

They claim it happened after two groups of friends, who had booked cinema tickets, clashed at the leisure complex.

Earlier that month, 48-year-old Gary Dean was brutally attacked in woodland close to his home in Barnsley.

He was found in a wooded area behind Moorend Lane, Silkstone Common, close to the Trans Pennine Trail.

Detectives said he had been subjected to a '˜violent and significant attack'.

Three arrests have been made over the death but nobody has yet been charged.
