Police in Lancaster County have arrested one man and are looking for a second suspect in a home invasion robbery where a 22-year-old man reported he was forced to the floor at gunpoint and restrained with a nylon belt.

David Figueroa, 25, of Lititz, was charged Wednesday with robbery, theft, unlawful restraint, and a firearms violation, according to Northern Lancaster County Regional police.

Figueroa was arrested in the morning at a home in the 200 block of West Burkholder Road in Clay Township, where authorities said they found numerous firearms and evidence linking him to the robbery Monday in the 1400 block of Furnace Hills Road as well as a home invasion robbery reported to Manheim Borough police Wednesday.

The victim also reported that a small amount of marijuana and a "mini-bong" water pipe was stolen, police said.

Police said the victim was restrained for about 15 minutes until he was freed by his father.
