SYP - WANTED: Brothers Sought re Sheffield Murder

WANTED: Brothers sought in connection with Sheffield murder


Details of Incident

Detectives investigating the murder of Armend Xhika in Sheffield in May 2021 are asking for your help to locate two brothers who are wanted in connection with Armend's death.

Eljaso Cela, 28, and his brother, 26-year-old Mateo Cela, are being sought by investigating officers as the murder inquiry continues. 

Armend suffered fatal stab wounds in Sheffield on Thursday 13 May 2021, after police received reports of men fighting on Earl Marshal Road in the Burngreave area.

Armend, 22, was taken to hospital but sadly died a short time later. 

Detective Chief Inspector Simon Palmer, the senior investigating officer for this murder inquiry, said: "Three people have been charged in connection with the death of Armend Xhika and legal proceedings are ongoing. 

"We are now very keen to hear from anyone who has information on the whereabouts of the Cela brothers.

"Eljaso is believed to also use the alias name Illiazy and it's possible that his brother Mateo may also be using an alias. The images that we're sharing with you today are the most recent we have available and are believed to have been taken around 2021. 

"Both brothers have been known to frequent the Sheffield and Rotherham areas, but we understand they are very transient and may have travelled elsewhere in the UK."
