A man has been arrested as part of an attempted murder investigation in Edinburgh.

The incident happened at around 5.30pm on Wednesday March 13 at a property in Pitcairn Grove in the south-west of the city.

It involved an alleged attempted murder of a 48-year-old and an alleged serious assault on a 22-year-old man, who tried to intervene.

Police Scotland said a man has been arrested in connection with the alleged attack but released while inquiries continue.

Officers launched the investigation after reports three balaclava-wearing men had assaulted the victims while armed with a blade.
