Officers were also stationed at the entrance to the multis yesterday.

A Police Scotland spokeswoman said: “Police Scotland attended at Hilltown Court, Dundee, yesterday at 4.40pm following the sudden death of a 20-year-old woman.

“The death is being treated as unexplained and as with all sudden deaths a report will be submitted to the procurator fiscal.”

A 25-year-old man was arrested at the scene for resisting police, threatening and abusive behaviour, police assault and obstruction.

Eyewitnesses told the Tele of hearing screaming and shouting coming from one of the flats before emergency services arrived.

 

One resident, who asked not to be named, said he heard a man shouting “she is dead”.

He added: “I saw the ambulances at the front of the block.

“There was a man who was screaming and shouting — he kept shouting ‘she is dead’.

“The police came afterwards — there were about five cars there in total. It was pretty harrowing to hear it all and then to find out that a woman was dead was a tragedy as well.

“Your heart just goes out to the family when stuff like this happens.”

Graham Milne, 56, a welder who lives in the area, said he witnessed the aftermath of the incident.

He said: “There were two ambulances and four police cars and a big white van at the scene.

“Sometimes there are problems here, so thought it would something to do with that.”

Rebecca Liddell, 19, a student who lives in the multi, said she had returned from college to see “a load of police officers outside of the block”.

A spokesman for the Scottish Ambulance Service confirmed they attended an incident at Hilltown Court at 4.25pm.
