A man has been arrested after being extradited from Germany over the indecent assault of a teenager in Edinburgh three years ago.
The 19-year-old woman was attacked on October 2, 2016, as she walked home along Salisbury Place.
Detectives from Edinburgh's Public Protection Unit continued to investigate the incident over the years, to which inquiries led to them liaising with authorities in Germany.
As part of the extradition process, a 40-year-old man was arrested at Edinburgh Airport on Tuesday.
He is due to appear at Edinburgh Sheriff Court on Wednesday.
