Victim of city stabbing thought he would die
A VICTIM of the Park Inn Hotel attack on West George Street has said he “feared he would die” as he lay on the ground bleeding after being stabbed.
The attacker, named Badreddin Abadlla Adam, was shot dead by police after he hospitalised six people on June 26, including 42-year-old police constable David Whyte.
Speaking with the Daily Record, Mex Abin told how he was the first person to be attacked after he bumped into Adam as he walked along West George Street to meet a friend.
The 20-year-old said Adam had called him over before slapping him on the face and stabbing him in his right side, then again on his left.
He said: “I think the knife was small. I didn’t even see it. I felt something had happened to my body but I didn’t know he had stabbed me.
“I was shocked. I panicked. I just wanted to run.”
