A man holed up in a local flat has been seen taunting police while the victim of a ‘stabbing’ has been rushed to hospital.
Officers responded to a call to attend Grampian Court, Perth, at 1.45am following reports of a man being injured.
It is believed the man was stabbed at a flat on nearby Angus Court and another man barricaded himself inside a property on Grampian Court.
Police were said to be negotiating with the man, who was seen leaning out of a top-floor flat window several times to shout, swear and gesture at officers on the street below.
Sniffer dogs are on the scene as the standoff continues. See video below.
A woman who later arrived at the scene and attempted to gain access to the address was detained.
The injured man was taken to hospital where his condition was unknown.
