By the time police made it to the house, the two suspects had fled the scene. The mother and her child were found tied-up and gagged, and the house was ransacked.
While police were searching the area, they arrested a man just a few blocks away on Main Avenue. They charged Ishawn David Redd with trespassing, but police say he is not connected to the home invasion.
Police say the suspects have been described as two black males, wearing dark clothing and scarves over their faces. They were possibly armed.
Police say the homeowners were not physically harmed during the incident.
