As the investigation into the fatal stabbing of Sheffield man Jarvin Blake continues, detectives are urging the public to please come forward with any information they may have, as it could prove vital in holding those responsible for his death to account.
Detective Chief Inspector Stephen Handley, the Senior Investigating Officer leading the case said: “A 22-year-old father of three has lost his life due to a mindless act of violence in the middle of the afternoon on Thursday, 8 March.
“Mr Blake and his friend, 23, were in the Burngreave area when a car pulled up on Catherine Street, at the junction with Brackley Street, just after 3pm and a group of people got out.
“Mr Blake was stabbed in the chest and the 23-year-old was also assaulted before the offenders fled the scene.
“Both were taken to hospital, where Mr Blake died as a result of his injuries. The 23-year-old was later released.
“Were you in the area at the time? Did you see anyone acting suspiciously? If you were picking your children up from the local school, do you have dash cam footage in your car?
“Any information, no matter how insignificant you feel it may be, could greatly assist with the investigation and I would please ask you to get in touch with police either on 101, or by anonymously calling Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.”
Four men, aged 24, 25 and two 26-year-olds, have been arrested and bailed in connection to the murder investigation while enquiries continue.
