A man accused of brandishing a fake gun in Ipswich has been detained to appear at crown court next month.
Terrie Forrest appeared at South East Suffolk Magistrates’ Court on Saturday, charged with possessing an imitation firearm with intent to cause fear of violence.
Forrest, 34, gave his address as Cavendish Lodge, in Turret Lane, Ipswich.
He was charged on Friday, following an incident in Ipswich the previous afternoon.
Armed police discharged a baton round at a man reportedly carrying a black metal firearm – thought to have been an air pistol – near Fore Street, Ipswich, just before 2pm.
The drama came to a conclusion when police fired a plastic bullet at the suspect in St Clement’s Church Lane.
The man was taken to hospital as a precaution.
