Late night Batley ‘gun’ arrest

A 20-YEAR-OLD man was arrested for possession of an imitation gun in Batley on Monday night.

Police were called to Woodhall Drive in Healey at 10.50pm after reports of a group of youths causing a nuisance outside a property.

A resident confronted one of the members of the group, who produced a knife and threatened him.

The suspect then disappeared into a property and returned with what was believed to be a handgun.

He then fled the scene.

Officers arrived soon after and a 20-year-old man from Heckmondwike was arrested for possession of an imitation firearm with intent to cause fear. No-one was injured during the incident and enquiries remain ongoing.

Anyone who has any information is asked to call Kirklees CID via 101 quoting crime number 13180323109.
