A teenager has been arrested on suspicion of possessing an imitation firearm in the Norwich area.
Officers were called to Waldegrave, Bowthorpe, at 5.50pm on Sunday after reports of anti-social behaviour.
A man in his late teens remains in police custody in connection with the incident, police confirmed.
It comes after Bowthorpe Neighbourhood Watch (BNW) had posted about groups of youths disrupting residents.
A social media post on Sunday said: "We were very disappointed to have received multiple calls today in regards to a large group gathering on the Three Score park.
"We notified police and made our way to the scene in plain clothes so we could monitor the situation.
"Police attended and dispersed the group, but were shocked when another group actually turned up and started playing football whilst police were stood there."
