Police Scotland have released images of a man they wish to trace in connection with a serious assault in Edinburgh city centre in January this year.
A 40-year-old male sustained facial injuries during the attack, which occurred on St Mary’s Street at around 11.45pm on Monday 18th January.
Detectives are keen to trace the male pictured within the CCTV footage who was seen in the area at the time of the assault.
Anyone who recognises the male in the images is asked to contact police immediately.
Detective Constable Christopher Harding said, “The victim suffered a very painful facial injury.
“The male pictured is believed to be of significance to our investigation and anyone who can assist in tracing him is asked to come forward.
“Similarly we would ask this male to get in touch with police themselves and help with our investigation.”
