Meadows rapist E-fit released
“This was a dreadful experience for the victim. It is essential we trace this man as soon as possible.”
Police released an e-fit this afternoon of a man they would like to interview in connection with the sex attack on the meadows last week.
A 19-year-old woman was attacked at around 7.00am on 15th November, on her return home from Cowgate, near Jawbone Walk.
Detective Chief Inspector Alwyn Bell, from Edinburgh Police, has said:
“We believe this is a very good likeness of the man we wish to trace.
“He is described as being between 20 and 30, 5’4″ to 5’9” in height, of medium build and wearing a black beanie hat, dark trousers and black zip-up tracksuit top.
“This was a dreadful experience for the victim. It is essential we trace this man as soon as possible.
“I am appealing for anyone who recognises the description or e-fit picture of the man to call Police Scotland on 101 or provide the information anonymously through Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 as soon as possible.”
