A man is due appear in court today after an incident which saw more than a dozen police vehicles called to a block of flats.
It is believed armed response units were among those called to the incident, which police have described as “contained” at the Cornhill Drive area of the city.
They were called out early on Saturday evening after receiving reports of a man in distress.
An ambulance was also called to the scene.
A 19-year-old man has since been charged and was expected to appear at Aberdeen Sheriff Court today in connection with the incident.
