THREE men were attacked in their home by knife-wielding robbers during a terrifying early morning raid.

The incident took place at a property on Ferry Road Drive at around 6am on Sunday morning.

Two men who broke in armed with knives attacked the residents before making off with a number of items including a phone and wallet.

All three victims had to be taken to Edinburgh Royal Infirmary to be treated for their injuries.

Police are now appealing for anyone who recognises the description of the suspects to get in touch.

The first suspect is described as white, skinny build, malnourished appearance, 18 to 20 years old, 5ft 3in to 5ft 4in tall, short, dirty blond hair and wearing a light grey cotton Adidas tracksuit with blue stripes.

The second suspect is described as white, 24 to 26 years old, heavier build, round face, short dark hair that is receding at the front, Scottish accent, and wearing a black Superdry style jacket, and dark jeans.

Detective Constable Ryan Lee said: “This was a very distressing incident for the victims, who were assaulted by the two suspects within their home. We are appealing for anyone who saw any suspicious behaviour in the area of Ferry Road Drive at around 6am this morning, to contact Police Scotland on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
