Police in Whitpain Township have arrested one of two men they say broke into a house in the 700 block of Danbury Drive early Saturday and threatened the homeowner with handguns.
In a statement Monday afternoon, investigators identified the suspect as Brian Keith Walters, 37, of Worcester, Montgomery County, and said he had been arrested in connection with the robbery. They gave no further details.
District Court records showed that Walters was charged early Monday with robbery, burglary, criminal trespass, aggravated assault, reckless endangerment, and terrorizing another person.
He was ordered held in the Montgomery County prison by District Judge Deborah A. Lukens when he could not post $150,000 bail.
A preliminary hearing is scheduled for 10:30 a.m. Thursday before District Judge John S. Murray III.
The second man remains at large.
The police statement said the homeowner told investigators that two men, one wearing a ski mask, entered through a rear door and went to the master bedroom, where the homeowner confronted them.
After a brief struggle, the statement said, the man chased the two from his house.
The homeowner fired three shots, but investigators said they did not know whose gun had been fired. The statement said no injuries were reported, and nothing was missing from the home.
A K-9 team from Montgomery Township assisted at the scene, along with police from Upper Gwynedd and East Norriton, and state police.
