A Dundee street was in lockdown on Tuesday night after a man was taken to hospital following a brutal assault.
As many as 10 police cars, plus paramedics and CID officers, swooped on Alloway Place, close to Morgan Rugby Club, in the east of the city.
Police Scotland confirmed a 36-year-old man had been taken to Ninewells Hospital following the incident.
No arrests have been made so far in connection with the attack.
Alloway Place resident William Grogan, 43, said: “There must have been about 10 police cars up along the street.
“There’s stuff like this happening all the time with the police around about here but it’s still shocking to see things like this in the middle of the afternoon.
“I saw a guy being put into the back of an ambulance.
“We still have no idea exactly what happened but police cars, vans, CID were just everywhere.”
Another woman, who didn’t wish to be named, said: “It was my daughter who told me all about it.
“I just missed it after coming in from my work.
“She said she could see about five or six police cars and an ambulance.
“I think some of them were spread out in Pitkerro Drive and from what she was saying quite a few of them were along by Morgan Rugby Club.
“The police are around here a bit but I haven’t seen much like that.”
A Police Scotland spokesman said: “Officers attended in Alloway Place shortly before 4pm on Tuesday in reponse to a reported disturbance.
“A 36-year-old man was found with injuries and had allegedly been assaulted.
“He was taken to Ninewells Hospital for treatment but his injuries were not life-threatening.
“Inquiries are at an early stage.”
