RIDDLE OF MAN WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO; Cops identify amnesia victim but he doesn't know how he got hurt.

Byline: Jack Mathieson

POLICE last night identified the mystery man with the dragon tattoo who lost his memory after a bump on the head.

Eugene Chousein was reunited with his family last night after being found by a taxi driver in Edinburgh's New Town on Wednesday.

But Eugene, 22, from Cambuslang, near Glasgow, still cannot remember who he is ... or how he got injured.

And police are anxious to trace anyone who knows what happened to him.

They tracked down his family after issuing an appeal centred on his distinctive triple dragonhead tattoo on his upper right arm.

Eugene had suffered a head injury when he was discovered lying in Northumberland Street.

He had cigarettes and a lighter in his possession, as well as some cash - but no identification.

He is being treated for his injuries at Edinburgh Royal Infirmary.

Detective Sergeant David Pinkney said: "He has a deep laceration on the top of his head. He has obviously had some trauma. Has he fallen over and banged his head? Has he been assaulted and robbed? "At this moment in time he is unable to tell us anything.

"He was found with pounds 12 cash but no ID, no wallet and no watches or anything like that.

"He's starting to get upset about not being able to remember.

"He's a very pleasant young man and he's trying to be helpful to police and trying to recall everything he can but he can't recall anything."

A police spokesman added that they were grateful for the positive response to their earlier appeals, which led to 5ft 3in Eugene reunited with his family.

He added: "The circumstances of how Eugene came to be injured remain unclear.

"However, there is a possibility that he may have been assaulted and robbed.

"We would like to hear from anyone who was in the Northumberland Street area on Wednesday night, and may have seen anything suspicious."
