A man has suffered a broken jaw after he was hit by a woman as he waited at a bus stop.
The 47-year-old was standing outside a Tesco store in Edinburgh when he was attacked.
He went into the supermarket on Holyrood Road at 10.50pm on Monday where staff called an ambulance and he was taken to Edinburgh Royal Infirmary.
After it was discovered he had a broken jaw, the man was transferred to St John’s hospital in Livingston for further treatment.
The female suspect was described as white, 5ft 6in tall with dyed blonde hair. She was wearing a short white skirt and had a brown dog with her.
A police spokesman said: "The victim has suffered some very painful injuries to his face, which will require some time to heal.
"We are still trying to determine exactly how the man sustained his injuries and what may have happened prior to the assault.
"Anyone who can assist with our investigation is asked to contact police immediately."
