Reward of £10,000 to find killer of man stabbed in car

A £10,000 reward has been offered in the search for the killer of a man who was stabbed to death.

Anthony Ferns, 33, was assaulted inside his car on Crebar Street in the Thornliebank area, near Glasgow, around 10pm on Thursday, April 18, last year.

Tony, as he was known, managed to drive the Audi A3 a short distance to his home on Roukenburn Street but collapsed.

Paramedics were unable to save him and he died in his garden in front of his mum Phyllis.

On the anniversary of Tony’s death Phyllis appealed to members of the public for help.

The suspect at the time of the initial appeal was described as aged between 20 and 30 and around 5ft 8ins to 6ft tall.

The sum of money will be rewarded if information is provided that leads he arrest and conviction of the person or people responsible for Anthony Ferns’ murder.

Angela Parker, Scotland National Manager at Crimestoppers, said: “Tony died in front of his mother after an attack that has shocked the community.

“No one should ever have to go through that. He was a much-loved son and partner.

“We know that for some people it can be incredibly difficult to speak up about crime, even if you, like us, believe we should all be able to live a safe life.

“Every day over a thousand people trust our charity with their information. It may be that you’ve been unable or unwilling until now to speak to the police directly, in which case, our charity can help. “
