MERSEYSIDE Police has arrested a man on suspicion of possession of a firearm and assault following an incident in Bootle, on Wednesday, 19 April 2017. We have been informed that Merseyside Police Officers were called to Miranda Road, Bootle, shortly before 11am, following a report that a man had assaulted a woman. A short time later the same man was reported to be carrying what appeared to be a firearm at the junction of Bedford Road and Miranda Road. The man then made off in a silver coloured car, in the direction of Stanley Road.  Specialist Police Officers were deployed and a search of the area took place. Later a 45 year old male, from Formby, was arrested, in Formby, on suspicion of possession of a firearm.
