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 attacked 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 that 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 but he wouldn’t let go of my t-shirt. I was screaming and struggling.

“His face was cold and calm. God must have saved me because I don’t know how but I pulled back – my t-shirt ripped and I broke free.”

Mr Abin, from the Ivory Coast, told how he thought of his mother as he lay on the pavement injured.

He said: “I was on a pavement, sure I was dying. I thought of my mum. I thought if I closed my eyes I would never wake up again. I was afraid to die.”

Mr Abin told the Daily Record that Adam was reserved, kept himself to himself and didn't know him.

He also said he forgives Adam for stabbing him and that the attacker “lost his mind and that is not his fault”.
