Police have arrested a group of men who threatened to kill a 16-year-old boy with an imitation gun.
It happened on Sunday night on Arthur Street in Redcar and sparked a big police investigation with armed officers and even sniffer dogs.
They set out after people reported a group of men threatening a boy outside a block of flats near the seafront.
Three men aged 41, 33 and 25 have been arrested on suspicion of threatening to kill.
They’re also suspected of possessing an imitation gun with the intention of causing fear of violence.
A family has been left worried after a brick was thrown through their dining room window in the middle of the night.
It happened shortly after midnight on Sunday night after the home owners went to bed.
They said the attack feels personal and that it’s left their two children terrified.
The brick has completely destroyed the window as well as a TV that was in the Morris Road home in Normanby.
Anyone with information or who might have CCTV footage is asked to call Cleveland Police on 101.
Arrangements for this year's Festival of Thrift at Kirkleatham Museum are now underway.
