Man charged following police operation in West Gosford

A man has been charged following a police operation in West Gosford today, NSW Police say.

Police were called to a home on Young Street about 5.30am today, after a woman alleged she was threatened with a firearm during an armed robbery.

Once at the location, police attached to Brisbane Water Local Area Command attempted to speak to a man inside a house; however he allegedly refused to communicate.

Specialist police from the Tactical Operations Unit were deployed to the location.

Shortly after, the man was arrested and taken to Gosford Police Station.

A crime scene was established and officers executed two search warrants as part of their investigations.

A number of items, including an air rifle, were seized by police.

The man was later charged with assault, robbery and a number of firearms offences.

He was refused bail and will appear in Gosford Local Court tomorrow.

It is believed the man and woman are known to each other.
