A Virginia man who worked on a home in Bethesda, Maryland, faces home invasion and other charges after he forced his way into an 81-year-old man’s house, police said.
Montgomery County police said Justin Easom, 33, of Warrenton, forced his way into the Searl Terrace home and threatened the victim around 2:24 p.m. on Thursday, police said.
Police said he stole property but did not injure the victim.
Easom had recently completed a home improvement project at the home.
Eason faces home invasion, armed robbery, first-degree assault and first-degree burglary charges.
Deputies with the Fauquier County Sheriff’s Office and Montgomery County police officers arrested Easom at his Fauquier County home Friday.
