Police renew an appeal over a South Queensferry assault

Police Scotland have renewed their appeal for a teenage boy they are trying to trace in connection with a serious assault on a seven-year-old girl.

The attack happened on Friday, 3 June, when the girl was playing on a cycle track near a bowling club in South Queensferry.

Police Scotland say they have been impressed by the bravery of the young victim who described the attacker as white, of high school age with hazel brown hair that was swept forward.

He was wearing dark bottoms, a blue round neck T-shirt with white lettering and had a temporary tattoo on one of his hands.

Det Insp Julie Marshall says she is confident that someone knows who the attacker is.
