Police are investigating after a man was left with stab wounds following an incident in a property in Dundee.
Officers were called to a block of flats on South Road, near to the junction with Craigard Road, at around 9pm Monday following reports a man had been found injured.
The 50-year-old had suffered what are believed to have been stab wounds to the shoulder. He was treated by paramedics at the scene and then taken to hospital.
Residents and passersby reported seeing a heavy police presence following the incident.
One witness was driving along South Road when he saw two police vehicles racing to the scene shortly after 9pm. He said: “There was a police van hammering along South Road – it must have been going at least 50mph as it weaved through the traffic.
“An estate car then joined.
“When I drove past, there must have been at least five police vehicles.
“It looked like the ambulance had been there for a bit, as the back door was open.”
A pedestrian said: “There was an unmarked police vehicle and a dog unit was among the police vehicles. More and more officers seemed to be arriving. They went into one of the blocks. I just hope no one is seriously injured.”
Another woman who lives in the block said: “I had been at the shop and I came back to see the police vans there. I heard that there had been a bad assault.”
A police spokesman said: “Police Scotland attended in the area of South Road around 9pm in response to reports of a man with an injury.
A 50-year-old man was treated by ambulance personnel for a shoulder injury. Inquiries are ongoing.”
A spokesman for the Scottish Ambulance Service said: “We transported one male patient to Ninewells.”
