Police swooped on a Dundee street after a self-styled vigilante group surrounded a man’s property.
Several police cars were spotted at Brantwood Avenue in the Glens area of the city at around 11.30am on Tuesday.
It is understood that members of the group turned up outside the flat before a man was arrested.
One eyewitness said the drama started outside a property on Lorimer Street.
The group turned up at the property before following a man in the direction of Brantwood Post Office.
Police arrived at the scene and a man was detained near to the post office.
Eyewitnesses spoke of seeing up to 10 officers at the scene.
A spokesman for Police Scotland said that a 51-year-old man had been arrested in connection with alleged online crimes but declined to comment on the nature of the alleged offences.
John Morrison, 69, who had been waiting to pick up a prescription at the time of the arrest, said: “There were at least six police officers in and around the area from about 11.30am.
“I was surprised to see them all there – it was unclear what exactly had happened.
“At first I thought there was an issue at the newsagent.”
Mickey Cairns, 36, who also saw the incident unfold, said: “There were two police cars and two vans at the scene.
“I must have seen at least 10 police officers here shortly after the whole thing happened.”
Another eyewitness said: “There were lots of people milling around and officers were chatting to residents.
“The incident had supposedly been ongoing since 11.30am.
“I was told that a man had been taken away in the back of a police van.”
A Police Scotland spokesman said: “A 51-year-old man has been arrested in connection with alleged online crimes.
“Inquiries are at an early stage.”
