Most Wanted: The 17 men and one woman urgently wanted by the police over crimes in South Yorkshire

They are wanted for serious offences including murder and rape.

These 17 men and one woman are wanted by detectives investigating a series of crimes, some of the most serious nature and some dating back years.

They are all believed to hold vital information about incidents which could help South Yorkshire Police crack a number of cases.

Their names and photographs have been published, along with brief details of the offences officers want to speak to them about.

Some of those in the ‘Most Wanted’ list have been evading arrest for years, including Ahmed Farrah, who is wanted in connection with the murder of a young man in Sheffield in 2018. To date, nobody has been charged over the murder, leaving the victim’s family in turmoil.

Anyone with information about any of the wanted men should call South Yorkshire Police on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111.
