One man was arrested and another was being treated in hospital last night after an altercation broke out “in a phone box”.

The incident happened at about 6pm beside a busy roundabout in the Hilton area of Aberdeen.

Shocked residents described seeing a man bleeding on the ground after what they understood to be a fracas.

The police confirmed that a 30-year-old man and a 32-year-old man had been taken to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary in the immediate aftermath.

It later emerged that one of the men had been arrested and was taken to Kittybrewster police station.

Police sealed off a patch of grass, including the phone booth where the incident is understood to have taken place, between Back Hilton Road and Ashgrove Court.

The cordon remained in place late into the night, with officers maintaining a presence in the area.

It is understood that one man suffered injuries to his head and hand, but was not thought to be in a life-threatening condition.

Passers-by last night described having seen a casualty lying on the ground as concerned residents came to his assistance.

One woman, who was on her way home from work, said: “There was a guy on the ground bleeding.

“There were lots of police and two ambulances on the scene, and there was a huge crowd of people.”

She added: “Quite a few people had stopped to help.”

A police spokesman said that officers were called to the spot “after a report of a disturbance”.

He added: “Two men, aged 30 and 32,  have been taken to hospital for treatment and inquiries are ongoing.”
