A MAN has been arrested following a large scale disturbance when a number of armed men attacked a house in Guisborough.
Police were called at about 8pm last night (Monday) to reports that two car loads of men smashed up the house on Warwick Road, Guisborough, and threatening the occupants before fleeing.
Officers believe the suspects drove away in a white van and a dark coloured 4x4 vehicle.
A Cleveland Police spokeswoman said: “We are confident this was a targeted attack on specific individuals and are reassuring the public that every effort will be made to find the people responsible. A number of officers remain in the area whilst enquiries continue.”
Armed response units were called to the incident with support from the force helicopter, whilst officers patrolled the area for several hours to reassure residents.
A 28-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of criminal damage and affray.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Cleveland Police on the non emergency number 101 or phone Crimestoppers on 0800-555-111.
