A man has been arrested over an Edinburgh street attack which saw another man being bitten on the face.

A 57-year-old victim was walking his dog near the Londis shop on Easter Road when he was approached by a man who punched him and bit him on the cheek.

The attack happened at about 11:00 on Thursday.

A minibus driver helped the victim by driving him away from the area. A 23-year-old man is due to appear in Edinburgh Sheriff Court later.
