Detectives in Leeds investigating the tragic stabbing of a man have made an appeal to find two males sought in connection with his murder.

The Homicide and Major Enquiry Team (HMET) would like to speak with anyone who can assist in locating Emile Riggan, 22 years old, and Louis Grant (also known as O’Brien), aged 29. They are wanted in connection with the killing of 19-year-old Emmanuel Nyabako.

Emmanuel was stabbed in an incident that took place in Francis Street, Chapeltown, during the early hours of Saturday, 26th August, sustaining severe injuries that ultimately proved fatal.

Officers have been conducting investigations in the Sheffield area to locate Louis Grant, while it is believed that Emile Riggan may have travelled to Ireland.

A 32-year-old man named Phillip Bryant, residing on Skinner Lane in Leeds, has already been charged with Emmanuel’s murder and is currently held in court custody awaiting trial.

A 15-year-old schoolboy and a 34-year-old woman, both apprehended in connection with the incident, are currently on police bail.

Detective Chief Inspector Damian Roebuck, of the Homicide and Major Enquiry Team, stated: “Our inquiry into Emmanuel’s murder is ongoing, and we are now in a position to release images of two males wanted on suspicion of his murder. We believe that Louis Grant, who is also known as O’Brien, is active in the Sheffield area, and that Emile Riggan travelled to the Republic of Ireland by ferry. We are conducting inquiries with partners in both locations and would ask anyone who can assist us in locating either man to get in touch with the Homicide and Major Enquiry Team (HMET) at West Yorkshire Police.”
