A large police presence was seen in a Dundee street after reports of a woman in distress.
Residents today spoke of their shock after seeing several police vehicles at Balunie Terrace, in the Douglas area of the city, around 11pm yesterday.
The street was cordoned off while officers carried out inquiries into the incident, with police tape still spotted in the area today.
Eyewitnesses spoke of seeing four police vans in the area while one resident said they saw a half-naked woman and clothing on the street.
Balunie Terrace resident Carolanne Wynne, 25, said she had been sleeping but was woken up and alerted to an incident by one of her neighbours.
She told the Tele: “At first I thought she was joking and then I looked out and saw four police vans.
“I was certainly shocked to see something like this going on in my street.”
Another person, who lives in the area, said: “I phoned the police around 10pm yesterday as I heard a girl distressed in the street.”
Another resident, who did not want to be named, added: “We have heard there was a white transit van involved and clothing was thrown onto the street and a woman was partially clothed.”
Amanda Oudney, 29, who lives in the street, said she thought it may have been something serious with the heavy police presence.
She added: “The first I really knew about it was when the police came into the close and then we saw a few pictures on social media.
“When I looked out the window and I saw all the police vans and the crime scene tape I thought it might have been something really serious.”
East End councillor Lesley Brennan said she was shocked to hear of the large police presence but said incidents like this were not common in the area.
She added: “I am pleased to hear the police seem to have been on top of this reported incident quickly.
“I am not aware what has happened but I hope for the sake of the woman and her family this is resolved sooner rather than later.
“Incidents like this in Douglas are not the norm and it is upsetting to hear what may have been a potentially distressing situation.”
A Police Scotland spokeswoman said today that they had attended the street after reports from residents in the area of a disturbance but after inquiries were carried out no action was required.
