Teen Trio Arrested Over Alleged Break-In

Three teenagers have been arrested and charged in connection with an alleged break-in and robbery at a home in Edinburgh.

An elderly man was injured in the incident which happened in Morningside Drive at about 11.30pm on Friday.

The suspects were said to have burst into the man's bedroom after he had gone to bed and demanded money.

Police said a 15-year-old and two 16-year-olds had been arrested and charged.

They are expected to appear at Edinburgh Sheriff Court today.

Detective Chief Inspector Martin MacLean said: "Following a swift and extensive police investigation, my team has arrested three males in connection with a break-in and robbery on Morningside Drive.

"I would like to thank the local community who assisted with our investigation.

"Violence in our communities is completely unacceptable and those involved in such offences will be pursued and, wherever possible, quickly arrested.''
