'Armed' men assault porter at Durrant House Hotel
Two masked men, who may have been armed, have assaulted a member of staff at a hotel in north Devon.
The men, wearing balaclavas, went into the Durrant House Hotel in Bideford at about 01:00 GMT, police said.
They assaulted a night porter, who was taken to North Devon District Hospital with minor injuries. They also threatened a woman before leaving.
Officers said they were investigating reports that the attackers had what appeared to be a shotgun and a pistol.
Police said it was possible the night porter was attacked because he had attempted to confront the men.
