Officers were called to a disturbance at Lossie Place, near to Ninewells Hospital, around 7.45pm yesterday, with a man in his thirties arrested.
One witness said: “I saw a support unit police van at the scene, which isn’t too uncommon, but you don’t like to see the police in your street, regardless.”
A spokesman said: “Police Scotland is investigating a disturbance which was reported in Lossie Place, Dundee, about 7.45pm on Thursday August 8.
“A 32-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of possessing an offensive weapon and has been released pending further enquiry.”
