A man’s been arrested and charged with allegedly threatening another man with a firearm at Fern Bay. 

Port Stephens Police were called to a caravan park on Nelson Bay Road at about 2:00pm yesterday (Thursday the 31st of November, 2023), following reports a dispute had erupted between two men. 

Officers say the altercation was over a noise complaint, and allege a 60-year-old man held a replica pistol up to a 76-year-old man and threatened him. 

No one was injured as a result of the incident. 

The younger man was arrested and taken to Raymond Terrace Police Station and charged with a number of firearm and other offences. 

He’s due to face court on the 19th of December.
