Man held over sex attack on girl
A man has been arrested in connection with an alleged indecent assault on a 13-year-old girl in Edinburgh.

The 20-year-old, who was arrested on Sunday, is alleged to have attacked the youngster as she walked in the capital's Ulster Drive on 5 July.

Lothian and Borders Police said the man has also been charged with several other alleged indecent assaults in the Portobello area over the last year.

He is expected to appear at Edinburgh Sheriff Court on Monday.
