Police have released CCTV footage of a man they want to trace as part of their investigation into a serious assault.

The attack happened in the Pilrig Street area of Edinburgh at about 02:00 on 24 April.

A 31-year-old man was left with a fractured jaw after being struck in the face.

The man police want to speak to is white, in his 20s, 5ft 8in tall, of slim build with short, blond or ginger hair. He had an Edinburgh accent.

He was wearing dark clothing.

Det Con Iain Wallace, of Police Scotland, said: "The victim was subjected to a violent and unprovoked assault while walking back from a night out with his friend.

"The man pictured is believed to be of significance to our investigation, and I'd urge anyone who may recognise him to come forward."
