Police are looking to trace a man and woman after a 35-year-old was left injured in Edinburgh.
Police are looking to trace a man and woman following an alleged attempted murder in Edinburgh.
Emergency crews were called after a 35-year-old man was left with various injuries near Bingham Park at around 10am on Sunday morning.
He was taken to the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh where he was treated for his injuries.
A 44-year-old man has been arrested and charged in connection with the alleged incident and made a first appearance at Edinburgh Sheriff Court on Tuesday.
Officers are now looking to trace two potential witnesses who were spotted in the area.
They believe a man who was walking from Niddrie through Bingham Tunnel between 10.40am and 10.55am, may have passed the area just prior to the alleged assault and are keen to speak to him.
Officers also claimed the 35-year-old man later walked from the Bingham Tunnel, to the top of Duddingston Row, at the bus terminus, where he passed a woman who may have observed his injuries.
Detective sergeant Clark Martin from Gayfield CID said: "The attack on the victim took place a very short time after the male witness passed him at the Bingham Tunnel and this person may have seen or heard something that is of use to our investigation.
"If you believe you are the male in question, then please contact us immediately.
"Likewise, the female witness saw the victim after the attack and may also be able to provide useful information.
"I want to stress that we are only looking to trace these individuals, due to what they may have seen, and which might assist our investigation."
