ARMED police flooded into a street after reports of a boy making threats to kill.

Emergency crews quickly filled Caburn Heights in Crawley after being called at 9.20pm on Wednesday. No arrests were made but enquiries continued.

Yesterday afternoon, a day after the initial call, officers arrested a 17-year-old boy on suspicion of threats to kill and possession of an offensive weapon in a public place.

He remains in custody at this time.
