Two men have been charged with aggravated burglary after an incident which caused major disruption in Haywards Heath.
Sussex Police said the pair had been arrested and charged on Friday after the incident on 23 September.
Part of the town was cordoned off for more than four hours while officers searched for two suspected gunmen.
It followed claims that a woman had been threatened in her home and had to seek refuge in the Santander bank.
Police are still seeking witnesses and have urged anyone who saw what happened to contact the force.
