Man jailed for attempting to murder one-year-old girl

Lukasz Chomiczewski, 26, carried out a 'senseless attack' on a baby in Edinburgh last August.

A man has been jailed for six years for trying to murder a baby.

Lukasz Chomiczewski, 26, carried out a “senseless attack” on the one-year-old girl in Edinburgh in August.

He pleaded not guilty to attempted murder, but was found guilty following a trial at the High Court in Edinburgh in February.

Chomiczewski was sentenced on Friday morning.

Detective chief inspector Iain Ramsay, of Edinburgh’s public protection unit, said: “This was a senseless attack on a defenceless child, resulting in serious injury.

“Chomiczewsk was in a position of care for the girl and was meant to protect her, instead he subjected her to a terrifying ordeal, for which there is no justification.”
