Youth held over attack

Have your say

A TEENAGER has been arrested in connection with an alleged serious assault in the Holyrood area of Edinburgh last week.

The 16-year-old boy is expected to appear at Edinburgh Sheriff Court later today in connection with the alleged incident on Wednesday.

A 50-year-old man suffered a facial injury in an incident involving a bottle which happened in Dumbiedykes Road.

He later required surgery for a severe gash to the side of his head.

Police had said they were treating it as a racist attack.
