NEWTON (CBS) – One man has been arrested after an armed home invasion on Falmouth Road in Newton Friday afternoon.

Police say the men were wearing ski masks and were armed with a large knife.

There were two people in the home at the time. “They tried to break in and do a home invasion, it was terrifying,” said the man who did not want to be identified. “They tried to grab me, it was a very bad situation.”

Police officers from Newton and Waltham searched the area and found one suspect a few streets away. That suspect is a 26-year-old Newton man.

Police are still looking for a second suspect described as a tall, thin African-American man.

The victim says no one was hurt and nothing was stolen from the home.

A police source says there were no drugs found in the home that was targeted.
