T In The Park stabbing victim making ‘good progress’

Festival-goer is in intensive care after being stabbed 11 times

The T In The Park festival-goer stabbed 11 times at the event is reportedly making “good progress”.

The 22-year-old man, currently in intensive care in Dundee‘s Ninewells Hospital, was stabbed in the early hours of Sunday (July 13).

He was apparently set upon by two men when he stepped in to help a female friend being hassled by the pair.


Tayside Police‘s Detective Chief Inspector Bruce Kerr told BBC Radio‘s ‘Good Morning Scotland’: “He was an innocent victim. He went to intervene with the two males who were accosting one of his female friends and they just set about him and he was stabbed 11 times, eight to the body and three to the head.”

Police claim they have forensic leads and are attempting to trace the two men, both described as white with dark hair and wearing red and white tracksuit tops, respectively.
