Man charged over Edinburgh 'taxi' sex assault
A man has been charged with sexually assaulting a young woman who got into a vehicle in Edinburgh, thinking it was a taxi.
The 19-year-old was sitting on a bench in Regent Road, at the bottom of Calton Hill, early in the morning of 10 August when a vehicle pulled up.
She accepted a lift believing it was a taxi, and told police she was then sexually assaulted.
Police Scotland said a 55-year-old man had been arrested and charged.
He was expected to appear at Edinburgh Sheriff Court later on Wednesday.
