A 19-year-old has been arrested in connection with an attack on a teenager that left him with a double broken jaw in Midlothian.

The incident happened after he got off a bus at about 17:45 on 30 March at Bogwood Road in Mayfield, Dalkeith.

The 17-year-old has since undergone surgery to treat his injuries.

The 19-year-old man has been reported to the procurator fiscal. He is expected to appear in court at a later date.

Det Con William Dickson, of Police Scotland, said: "We've traced and arrested a 19-year-old man in connection with an assault in Mayfield on Wednesday, March 30th.

"I would like to take this opportunity to thank the members of the public who came forward and assisted with our inquiry.

"Such violent behaviour is completely unacceptable and I can assure the local community that we treat such incidents extremely seriously and will do all that we can to arrest those responsible."
