A man has been taken to hospital after emergency services received reports of 'bleeding' and 'a collapse'.
An ambulance was called at 3.20pm to reports that the man was bleeding outside Barnardo's charity shop on Cherry Tree Road.
A police spokesman said officers were contacted by the ambulance service 10 minutes later with reports of a collapse.
One witness reported seeing police vans, tape, and CSI at the scene.
Neither police nor the ambulance service could provide information about the man's current condition, however, a police spokesman said there was 'no suggestion' that he was stabbed.
They said: "Enquiries are on-going and remain in their very early stages.
"Anyone with information should call 101 quoting log number 0860 of today, June 10."
A leading member of staff at Barnardo's refused to comment.
