Police have launched an investigation after a stabbing at a block of flats.
A man was attacked in Kemnay Gardens in the Douglas area of Dundee.
Up to six people are said to have been involved in a fight outside the block before the knife attack took place.
One witness said two men were seen walking down the street with blades as the incident unfolded.
One onlooker said it was “like an episode of The Bill” as police and an ambulance descended on the area at about 5pm on Thursday.
Officers remained inside a block of flats today guarding a house and scenes of crime investigators attended.
A window in the block was smashed and there was blood on a wall in the close.
One local man, who didn’t want to be named, told the Tele he saw two men “carrying knives and vodka bottles” after the incident.
Meanwhile David Johnson, 72, whose house overlooks the flats, saw the attack unfold.
He said: “I initially saw men and girls involved in a fight outside.
“The men were fighting and the girls were screaming their heads off.
“One of the guys seemed to be getting the better of the other two.
“They ran off down the path towards the shops at the foot of the path at Huntly Square.
“Someone must have called the police because they arrived pretty quickly.
“The whole area was cordoned off including the path.
“You couldn’t get up it at all. The next thing an ambulance arrived and stopped at the foot of the path.
“They seemed to put someone into the back of the ambulance.”
A man who lives in the block — who declined to be named — said there was a significant police presence when he got home just after 5pm and he heard someone had been stabbed.
One witness added: “It was like an episode of The Bill.”
The condition of the victim was not known at the time of going to press.
A police spokeswoman said: “Police Scotland is carrying out inquiries into a serious assault which happened in Kemnay Gardens, Dundee, yesterday at about 4.50pm.”
A spokesman for the Scottish Ambulance Service added: “We received a call to attend an address at Kemnay Gardens, Dundee, but were later stood down.”
