e-fit Meadows rapist

Edinburgh Police have issued an e-fit drawing of what it is believed the man who attacked a 19 year old woman last weekend may look like.

They wish to interview a man answering this likeness in connection with the rape of the woman in The Meadows around 7am last Saturday morning.


Detective Chief Inspector Alwyn Bell, who is leading the enquiry, 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.”
