This preceded a second incident that occurred around 7:45 the following evening when a 40-year-old man was robbed of his delivery in Westfield Road.

The gang covered their faces with balaclavas or ski masks and threatened the driver with a knife before running off with the pizzas towards Alexander Drive.

A 16-year-old boy is due to appear at Edinburgh Sheriff Court today and two boys, both aged 15, will be reported to the Children’s Reporter.
