Police have issued a description of the man they’re looking for, he’s described as in his late 30s, about 5ft 8in with dark brown hair and of medium build.
He is believed to have been wearing a brown jacket, blue polo shirt, dark blue jeans, and dark blue Adidas trainers with white soles.
Witnesses reported seeing four police vehicles, including an unmarked car, at the scene.
One said: “I was walking along Hilltown Terrace when I saw a police van and two police cars.
“When I walked towards the multi I noticed there was also an unmarked police vehicle.
“Judging by the large police response I knew it must have been fairly serious.”
