A man who died after an incident of violent disorder in a Rotherham street can now be named as Fatjon Oruci.

Fatjon, aged 22, from London, was found on Doncaster Road at about 1.20am on Saturday (1 January). A post mortem found he died of catastrophic injuries as a result of beating, while he had also been stabbed.

The family of Fatjon have been made aware and are being supported by specially-trained officers at this time.

On Saturday afternoon, a 26-year-old man and a 20-year-old woman were arrested on suspicion of murder in London. They have been released under investigation while the investigation continues.

A 23-year-old man from Rotherham was then arrested on suspicion of murder on Tuesday (4 January). He has since been released from custody with no further action to be taken due to a lack of evidence.

They are keen to speak with anyone who may have seen or heard anything suspicious, between 11pm on Friday 31 December 2021 and 2am on Saturday in the area of either Badsley Moor Lane or Doncaster Road.
