The incident took place at 3.30pm, with police seen heading away from the scene two hours later.
A police spokeswoman said: “Police in Aberdeen are currently attending to a report of a concern for person on Marischal Street in Aberdeen.
“Emergency services are in attendance and a cordon has been put in place at Virginia Street northbound with its junction to Market Street.
