Police are probing claims a woman was verbally abused by a man urinating in a close.
The incident is said to have happened at around 10.30am on Tuesday on Albert Street.
And residents in the street say they have been plagued by incidents of antisocial behaviour and drug misuse over the last few years.
The woman was said to have been verbally abused while walking towards a tunnel at the close where it is claimed she was confronted by a man urinating behind a set of wheelie bins.
He is then said to have threatened to slap the woman before leaving the scene.
A spokesman for Police Scotland said: “We are aware of the incident and are making inquiries.”
The woman, who didn’t wish to be named, said: “I had been out taking the dog for a walk and I came up the tunnel at around 10am and there was a guy there doing the toilet.
“He was just standing there and I was frightened to come near him. He was very aggressive and he said to me ‘do you want me to slap you?’
“He just left and boarded a bus so surely they’ll have CCTV of him doing that.
“We’ve had so much bother up here with needles lying around, cans and bottles of beer scattered about.
“There’s been more than one person caught doing the toilet. It’s just disgusting.”
Albert Street resident Ross Mitchell, 38, stays in the block closest to the tunnel.
He said: “It tends to happen now and then but it’s been ongoing ever since I moved in here.
“The fact that there’s even one occasion where somebody has been urinating there is bad enough.
“There are people that leave a lot of mess around the back of the tunnel and there have been lots of people caught relieving themselves.
“Nothing is being done about it and we still keep having the same problems.”
