Man attacked on Calder Road

Police Scotland officers in Edinburgh are appealing for witnesses after a man was seriously assaulted on Calder Road in the early hours of Friday morning.

The 37-year-old was assaulted at a bus stop there, between the junction at Calder Crescent and the underpass near to Wester Hailes Road, sometime between 12.50am and 1.15am on 13 June 2014.

As a result of the attack, the man sustained serious facial injuries and a Police Scotland enquiry is now underway.
Detective Constable Joyce Gunderson said: “This was a serious incident in the very early hours of the morning but we believe that some members of the public may have seen something suspicious in and around Calder Road, and we urge those people to get in touch immediately.

“The suspect is male and it is understood that he was wearing dark clothing at the time of the attack. Anyone with any information which may assist our investigation should contact Police Scotland on 101 or, alternatively, the charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
