A 23-year-old man is remanded in custody...
A man has been charged on three counts of attempted murder following an incident at the T IN THE PARK festival last Saturday (July 7).
John Cross, of Stonehouse in Lanarkshire, was remanded in custody after a brief hearing at Perth Sheriff Court yesterday (July 9). The 23-year-old will face the court again on July 16.
He faces an additional charge of assault with intent to cause severe injury.
Cross is accused of stabbing and attempting to murder Alan McPhail, Derek Wilson and Jamie McIlwraith, all of Glasgow, at Kinross. He is also charged with stabbing Alfred Stanley of Birkenhead. The incidents happened on the festival campsite around breakfast time on Saturday (July 7). The condition of the alleged victims has not been made public, nor have the details surrounding the alleged attack.
Cross has not yet entered a plea.
A police spokesperson told NME.COM that Cross’ arrest was the most serious incident at the festival. Just 42 people were arrested in total, the lowest ever for the event, mostly for minor drink related offences. Over 100,000 revellers attended over the weekend’s two days.
