A 30-year-old man is due to appear in court following an alleged disturbance in a Perth street.

Officers in riot gear were called to Menzies Court at about 20:20 on Thursday after police attempted to execute a warrant.

Neighbours reported a man walking around covered in blood earlier in the evening.

A block of flats in the street was sealed off while police officers and an ambulance crew dealt with the incident.

A Police Scotland spokeswoman said a man was expected to appear at Perth Sheriff Court on Friday.
