Man Charged After Cyclists Pushed into Canal

A man has been charged after several cyclists were pushed into the Union Canal in Edinburgh.

Between 5pm and 9.15pm on Wednesday 27 March 2019, three men cycling on the path near Murrayburn and Wester Hailes were pushed into the canal and sustained minor injuries.

Officers from the south west community policing team launched an investigation and a 17-year-old boy has been charged with a number of assaults.

Sgt Alex Dickson said:

Tackling violence, disorder and anti social behaviour is a priority for police in Edinburgh and such reckless behaviour will not be tolerated.

We would like to thank the public for their positive response in relation to these incidents which was of great assistance during the inquiry.
