Ferry Road Drive incident treated as attempted murder

Detectives are appealing for information following an attempted murder in Ferry Road Drive yesterday.

A 24-year-old man suffered serious injuries after being deliberately knocked off his motorbike by a car around 1.45pm on Thursday.

The man was taken to the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh where his condition is described by medical staff as stable.

The occupants of the vehicle made off and enquiries are ongoing. The car, a black Fiat Panda, had previously been reported stolen from the local area.

Officers believe this was a targeted attack and are appealing for anyone who witnessed the incident, or who has dashcam footage of what happened, to contact police.

Superintendent Mark Rennie said: “Violence of this nature won’t be tolerated in any part of the city.

“This is a prime example of a small number of young people creating fear and concern in a local community. Our investigation is progressing well and we will have an enhanced policing presence in the area to reassure local residents and prevent any further disorder.

“Every single person involved in recent incidents in the area will be pursued and arrested and we will ensure that identified offenders are quickly put before the courts.”

Anyone with information is urged to contact Police Scotland on 101 quoting reference 1820 of Thursday, 28 July, 2022. Alternatively, call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
