Just after 11am yesterday, officers attended the Normanby Road and King Street area after reports that a man was armed with an offensive weapon and had struck another man's vehicle, made threats towards him, and then driven off.
An area search was launched by Cleveland Police, and a 26-year-old man was arrested in connection with the incident.
He was taken into custody for questioning while the force continue its enquiries.
The Chancellor of the Exchequer Jeremy Hunt has been visiting our area.
