Police are investigating a mysterious incident in Brighton, in which four men called at an address looking for someone who does not live there - armed with metal bars and a baseball bat.
Officers were called out at 10.25pm last night to the address in Pett Close, Whitehawk.
The men had forced a door and were shouting threats to a man, but nobody of that name lives there.
On realising that the men left and are believed to have driven away in a silver hatchback vehicle. Nobody was injured and nothing was taken.
