Mother’s plea to help catch her son’s mur­der­ers

The Herald - - NEWS - LUCINDA CAMERON

THE mother of a “lov­ing” fa­ther who was mur­dered near her pub has made an emo­tional ap­peal for in­for­ma­tion to help catch her son’s killer.

Owen Has­san, 30, died in her arms as she per­formed CPR on him on the doorstep of the bar in Shaw­lands, Glas­gow.

Po­lice said two men hid be­hind the Old Stag Inn in Green­view Street wait­ing for him and then at­tacked him with bladed weapons in a “vi­cious and sus­tained” planned at­tack on Wed­nes­day, Novem­ber 7.

Mr Has­san’s mother An­n­marie Lynch and his fa­ther Daniel Has­san at­tended a press con­fer­ence with po­lice in Pais­ley yesterday.

She said: “I still can’t be­lieve that he’s gone and ex­pect him to walk through the door as he did ev­ery day. Owen was a lov­ing fa­ther.

“On the night of Novem­ber 7 he left three young chil­dren with­out a dad and was de­nied watch­ing his son and two daugh­ters grow up.

“I hope that no other fam­ily has to en­dure the ex­pe­ri­ence and suf­fer­ing and be­lieve that some­one out there must have in­for­ma­tion that could help catch the two men who vi­o­lently killed my son.

“As a mother I beg any­one out there who has any in­for­ma­tion at all that could help catch these men to please con­tact po­lice im­me­di­ately.”

Mr Has­san, whose three chil­dren are aged un­der 10, met a friend for din­ner in Oro in Kil­marnock Road on Novem­ber 7 and left around 5.30pm.

Po­lice are try­ing to es­tab­lish what the 30-year-old did be­tween leav­ing the restau­rant and ar­riv­ing at the Old Stag Inn at around 10.20pm.

He left the pub shortly after­wards and was chased by two men who at­tacked him.

De­tec­tive Chief In­spec­tor Martin Fer­gus said: “We know that the two in­di­vid­u­als se­creted be­hind the Old Stag Inn on the night in ques­tion at the back of 10 o’clock that night were clearly await­ing Owen Has­san.

“What we know is that Owen Has­san at­tended the pub for a few mo­ments that night to en­gage with his mother, how­ever on leav­ing the pub he was at­tacked vi­ciously by these two in­di­vid­u­als with bladed weapons.

“Sub­se­quently he died on the doorstep of his mother’s pub­lic house in her arms as she at­tempted CPR and I would ap­peal to any­body on the back of this ap­peal made by An­n­marie.

“At this time of year a mother and her grand­chil­dren have now been left with­out a fa­ther and I would ask if any­one has any in­for­ma­tion please get in con­tact with us.”

„ Owen Has­san was stabbed out­side the Old Stag Inn.
