Yorkshire Ambulance Service also attended the scene and despite their best efforts, Mohamed was pronounced dead at 5.15pm.

A post-mortem examination concluded that he died as a result of the stab injuries he suffered.

His family is now being supported by the force’s family liaison officers and have asked that their privacy is respected at this time.

James Lee, 31, of Doncaster Road, Rotherham, has been charged with murder.

Detective Chief Inspector Paul Murphy said: “My thoughts are with Mohamed’s family at this very difficult time. It’s hard to fathom the impact this has had on them, his friends and the wider community who are coming to terms with what has happened.

“Our investigation into this incident continues at pace and our officers remain at the scene as they conduct their enquiries.

“You might see more of our officers out on patrol across the city centre this weekend – they are there to provide reassurance. If you have any concerns, please do go and speak to them- they are there to help and support you.

“We remain keen to hear from anyone who was in the city centre on Friday who might have witnessed what happened.

“We know there may have been people in the area who witnessed the incident, but have yet to come forward with information. You might think your input is insignificant, but any information you have could be crucial for our investigation.

“I’d also ask that people check their CCTV cameras and dashcams for any footage recorded around the time of the incident that might help us.

“If anyone has any information that might help our officers, please call 101 quoting incident number 585 of 17 September.

“Alternatively, you can stay completely anonymous by contacting the independent charity Crimestoppers via their website or by calling their UK Contact Centre on 0800 555 111.”
