Police have released CCTV images of a man they believe may be able to assist them with their enquiries into an armed robbery in the south of the city.  

The incident happened at around 1pm on Friday 8 February at a dental practice on Ratcliffe Terrace.

A man entered the premises in possession of a weapon and stole a number of items from within the treatment rooms.

No one was injured during this time.

Officers believe the man pictured may be able to assist with their investigation and anyone who recognises him is asked to come forward.

He is described as around 6ft tall, aged in his thirties, of very slim build, and is believed to have an Eastern European accent.

He was wearing a black balaclava with a red logo on the forehead, glasses, a tight grey-coloured top, dark coloured bottoms, red trainers and wore gloves.

Detective Constable Stephen Herd from Edinburgh’s Violence Reduction Unit said: “This incident has left staff at the premises understandably shaken and our enquiries remain ongoing.

“We are keen to hear from anyone who can help identify the man pictured, and anyone who can help us trace him is asked to come forward.
