Police are still making inquiries after a woman was sexually assaulted
in the Meadows on Tuesday morning.
The attack took place at roughly 3:30am, somewhere between Melville Drive and Warrender Park Crescent. The woman, aged 19, was attacked by two men, believed to be in their early 20s.
After attacking the victim, the men are believed to have run away towards Bruntsfield.
The suspects are described as being of average build, white, and wearing dark coloured hoodies.
Lothian and Borders police issued a statement yesterday, stating that they were “still working to establish exactly where it happened”.
“Anyone who was in the area of the Meadows or Bruntsfield in the early hours of [Tuesday] morning, who saw or heard anything suspicious, should contact the police immediately.”
“Similarly, anyone who saw two men matching the descriptions of the suspects in either the Meadows or Bruntsfield Links areas should get in touch.”
Napier News contacted the police and were told that there was no new information, but inquiries are ongoing.
There was confirmation that officers would continue to patrol the Meadows this evening. They will be dressed in high-visibility jackets while investigations continue. They hope that these actions will reassure the public.
