Man Stabbed During Attempted Robbery In Edinburgh
A police investigation is under way after a man was stabbed during an attempted robbery in Edinburgh.
The incident happened at about 10pm on Tuesday at Victoria Quay in the Leith area of the city.
A 20-year-old man was walking from the Ocean Terminal shopping centre towards a Scottish Government building when he was approached by another man who attempted to steal his watch.
There was a struggle, which resulted in the victim sustaining a puncture wound to his stomach. It is understood the type of weapon used is currently unknown.
The man was taken to Edinburgh Royal Infirmary, where he was treated for his injuries before later being discharged.
Officers are keen to trace the male suspect who was described as white, 6ft, of average build and wearing a dark-coloured hooded top with the hood up.
Detective Sergeant Neil Spowart said: ''This was a very frightening incident for the victim, who sustained a painful injury to his abdomen as a result.
''Thankfully, though, he was not more seriously hurt.
''We are keen to hear from anyone who remembers seeing any suspicious activity around the Victoria Quay area on Tuesday evening or who can help us identify the male responsible.
''Anyone with information should contact police immediately.''
Anyone with information can contact Police Scotland on 101 or, alternatively, the charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
