Edinburgh man sentenced to 10 years in prison for frenzied knife attack

By John Gillespie

The man responsible for an attempted murder in Edinburgh in 2020 has been jailed for 10 years.

At the Edinburgh High Court on Friday, May 13, 22-year-old Robbie Brown was sentenced to 10 years in prison after an attack that occurred on November 26, 2020.

Brown attacked a 22-year-old man in a property in Craigentinny Road with bladed weapons nearly two years ago.

After the attack, the victim was rushed to Edinburgh’s Royal Infirmary for treatment for his injuries.

The police have said they would like to thank the public for coming forward after the police appealed to locals for information on the attack.

They also say they hope today's sentencing will provide a level of comfort to the victim after the terrifying incident.

Detective Sergeant Keith Taylor said:

“Robbie Brown orchestrated this violent and premeditated attack, an attack which could have cost the victim his life, therefore we welcome him being brought to account for his actions.

“Following the incident we issued an appeal for the help of the public and I would like to thank everyone who came forward to assist.

“I would also like to thank the victim and hope that this sentencing will offer him some comfort.

"We are committed to bringing perpetrators of violence to justice and providing all the necessary support and assistance to victims of such offences."
