The Park Inn Hotel was being used by the Mears group to house asylum-seekers during the coronavirus pandemic.  

It is understood the man behind the attacks had been staying in Glasgow for six months and had been struggling with his mental health

One of the asylum-seekers had gone to the reception with concerns about the man's behaviour after the man told him he was going to attack. 

The Park Inn resident Siraj, 22, told ITV: "The boy [told] me I will attack. I reported that to the hotel reception. 

"I said I don't have evidence but we need to be careful because we don't know what could happen. 

"He said 'I will attack' so everyone must take it seriously."

"He said 'they hate me, I hate them, they are against me'."

Siraj tried to calm the man, whom he did not know very closely, down.

He added: "I said to him nobody hates you."
