A man armed with what appeared to be a shotgun has pointed it at another man inside a house in Hastings, and made threats.

Police were called following the armed incident in Old London Road at 4.40pm yesterday afternoon (Monday, 23).

The man had then made off in a white Mercedes-Benz C class car, driven by another man.

Officers said no-one was injured, while the car was later found abandoned at the junction of Parker Road and Fellows Road.

It’s believed all parties involved were known to each other.

Police are looking for a man in connection with the incident, who has been described as black, 6’1″ tall, early 30s, of a stocky build, and with a shaved head.

A second man is also being sought, and has been described as being of a similar appearance, but of a thinner build and slightly taller.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police online here, or call 101, quoting reference number 991 of 23/04.
