Police probe after man stabbed in mass fight at block of flats
Police in Dundee 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 on Thursday.
There were reports of a disturbance between several people and men walking down the street carrying knives 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.
Officers remained inside a block of flats yesterday guarding a home, and scenes of crime investigators were expected to attend to survey the scene.
A window in the block was smashed and there was blood on a wall in the close.
One local man, who did not want to be named, said 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 three men and two 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.”
Another witness added: “It was like an episode of The Bill.”
Police were unable to confirm yesterday whether the victim had suffered any serious injuries and no details were available at the time of going to press.
A spokeswoman said: “Police Scotland is carrying out inquiries into a serious assault which happened in Kemnay Gardens, Dundee, at about 4.50pm.”
