Clacton: Appeal following disturbance
Main article content
We are appealing for information after a man was threatened with a weapon in Clacton earlier this week.
We received reports of a disturbance at the junction of Agate Road and Marine Parade West at around 12.25am on Wednesday 25 August. It was reported that a firearm was seen.
We believe that the person with the weapon then made off in the direction of the Premier Inn.
A 16-year-old boy from Holland-on-Sea was arrested on suspicion of possession of firearms with intent, possession of an offensive weapon, being concerned in the supply of a controlled drug, possession of cocaine with intent to supply, producing cannabis and two offences of common assault.
He has been released on bail until 12 September.
An 18-year-old man from Clacton, arrested on suspicion of assault, will face no further action.
We are keen to speak to anyone about who may have CCTV footage, dashcam footage, or information about this incident.
Please get in touch with Clacton CID and quote the crime reference number 42/178554/21.
