He branded the thief a ‘low life’ and the scooter was later found and returned to him for a second time.

When the scooter was first stolen, Kerthanie said it was of ‘sentimental value’ because it was the last thing Kavan had bought him before he was killed.

Kavan was stabbed in his chest in an alleyway off Langsett Walk, near Upperthorpe, on Tuesday, August14.

He underwent emergency surgery but could not be saved and died in hospital four days later when his life support machine was switched off.

Four arrests have been made so far, but nobody has yet been charged.

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 investigating the murder want to trace Ahmed Farrah, 29, who they believe could hold vital information.

They believe that Farrah, who is also known as Reggie and has links to Broomhall, knows he is wanted by but claim he is evading arrest.

Detectives have warned that anyone shielding him faces prosecution. 

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