Masked men attack pair in own home in Edinburgh

Masked men attacked a man and woman after breaking into an Edinburgh flat in the early hours of the morning.

The pair entered the flat on Gorgie Road with their faces covered at about 04:00 on Tuesday.

A 29-year-old man was taken to Edinburgh Royal Infirmary with non-life threatening injuries.

A 67-year-old woman sustained minor injuries. Police are appealing for witnesses.

Det Con Joyce Gunderson, of Police Scotland, said: "This incident happened in the early hours of the morning, however, it's possible that passing traffic, especially taxi drivers, may have noticed the two men leaving the property.

"If anyone remembers seeing two men acting suspiciously outside around that time, please get in touch."
