Following an exchange he was assaulted with a bladed or pointed weapon, police said.

The consequences of this attack could have been much more serious Detective Sergeant Alexander Brydon

He was treated for a serious neck injury after the attack at around 7.30pm and remains in a serious but stable condition at the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh.

Detective Sergeant Alexander Brydon said: “This was a vicious attack which has left the victim seriously harmed.

“Thankfully he was quickly attended to, however the consequences of this attack could have been much more serious.

“We are eager to trace the two men involved as soon as possible.

“I would appeal to anyone who was in the Fod Street area on the evening of Monday April 1 and saw anything suspicious to come forward at their earliest convenience.”
