Have your say

Police are appealing for information following a serious assault in Edinburgh over the weekend in which a man was stabbed three times.

The incident happened around 7.35pm on Friday, October 7, at an address in Boswall Terrace. A 25-year-old man was in the house with a 25-year-old woman when three men called at the front door.

The men then forced their way into the property and attacked the man before stealing various items then fleeing the scene.

All three men are described as wearing dark clothing, black baseball caps, with scarves covering their faces. They spoke fluent Polish throughout the incident.

Detective sergeant Graham Grant said: “The victim suffered significant blood loss, but fortunately they missed major organs and he was left only with flesh wounds.”

“We’ve got door-to-door teams carrying out inquiries and witnesses have come forward. I would appeal for anybody who has been a victim of a similar attack to get in touch.”

Anyone with any information should contact police on 0131-311 3131.
