A house has been cordoned off in Inverness following a “serious assault”.
Police were called to the property in Rosehaugh Road in the early hours of 1.55am on Monday morning after reports of a “disturbance”.
As a result, a 36-year-old man was taken to hospital with a “serious leg injury”.
The flat has remained sealed off with yellow tape into Monday afternoon as two officers and a police van remained on the scene.
The force say they are now conducting inquiries to establish the full circumstances of the incident.
Officers will therefore remain in the area.
