A man has been left seriously injured following a murder bid by a balaclava-clad gang in Edinburgh.
The incident occurred near a pub in Davidson Mains, at around 12.05am on Friday, April 21.
The 20-year-old man had just left a pub on Main Street when he was attacked by three men with a bladed weapon.
He was taken to the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh by ambulance with serious injuries.
All three suspects were dressed in dark coloured clothes and balaclavas, and are believed to have left the area in a red saloon-type vehicle.
“We are appealing for anyone who witnessed or has information on the incident to get in touch,” said detective inspector Kevin Tait.
“I’d particularly ask anyone who was within the pub on Main Street yesterday evening (April 20) to come forward to help our enquiries.
“Equally anyone who may have seen a red saloon car in the Davidson Mains, or surrounding areas, or has information on this vehicle and its occupants, should contact officers as soon as possible.
“We are assessing available CCTV footage and anyone who may have dashcam of the incident, or vehicle, should provide this at your earliest opportunity.”
Anyone with information or dashcam footage is asked to contact Police Scotland on 101 quoting incident 0010 of April 21.
