Appeal after father stabbed to death in Glasgow park

19 April 10 15:30 GMT

Detectives investigating the murder of a father-of-three stabbed to death in a Glasgow park have issued a fresh appeal for information.

Andrew Curran, 41, died after a disturbance in Maryhill Park at about 2130 BST on Friday.

Police said his family had been left devastated.

Detectives said a number of people, both men and women, were involved in the incident. They are keen to speak to a couple seen walking in the park.

A 50-year old man also injured in the disturbance is now recovering at home.

Stepping up patrols

Det Insp Simon Midgley, who is leading the investigation, said police had received a relatively good response from the public but he urged more people to come forward.

He said: "We believe that a young couple, possibly in their 20s, walked through the park around about the time of the disturbance. I would ask them to contact police as they may have witnessed something inadvertently that could be useful to our inquiries.

"Likewise, a number of men and women were seen running into nearby Acre Road shortly after the disturbance, and whilst we aren't sure if they were directly involved I would ask them to come forward. They could be significant witnesses."

He said police were stepping up patrols in the areas.

He added: "Andrew was married with three children and his family has been left devastated by his untimely death, and we will not rest until those responsible are brought to justice."
