Police have released CCTV images of a man they are looking to trace in order to assist with their ongoing enquiries into an attempted robbery.

Detectives believe the man in the image could aid them with their enquiries after two men were approached and threatened in an attempted robbery in Dundee Street.

The incident took place in Dundee Street around 2.20am on 5th July 2018.

He is described as white, tall, of slim build, with a prominent nose and dark hair which was shaved at the sides and back and longer on the top.

He is pictured wearing wraparound-style sunglasses, a dark-coloured jumper, jeans and dark-coloured Adidas trainers with white detail.

Detective Constable Joyce Gunderson of Corstorphine CID said: “The two men were just trying to make their way home when this incident took place and, as part of our enquiries, we’re urging anyone who may recognise the man pictured to contact us as soon as possible.”

Anyone with information can contact Police Scotland on 101, quoting incident number 1236 of 5th July, or report this anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
