Family release photo of Nottingham stabbing victim Michael Anton O’Connor

The family of a man who was fatally stabbed in The Meadows last week have released a picture of him.

Michael Anton O’Connor, 31, from Alexandra Park, was found with knife wounds in Wilford Crescent West shortly before 10.30pm on Wednesday (10 November).

Officers worked hard with paramedics to provide emergency first aid to the 31-year-old but he sadly died a short time later at the Queen’s Medical Centre.

Eight people were subsequently arrested on suspicion of murder following the incident. They included seven men aged 19, 21, 23, 27, 29, 34 and 47 and a 37-year-old woman who have all been released on conditional bail while enquires continue.

A 28-year-old woman arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender has also been released on conditional bail.

“Our thoughts remain with them and we continue to have specially trained officers supporting Michael’s family through this difficult time.

“Anyone with information which may assist with our enquiries can contact police on 101.”

“We are also continuing to work in partnership with faith and community leaders who are undertaking outreach work in the area in response to this tragedy. If you have any concerns, please don’t hesitate to speak to any of our officers.”
