When the call came in that a man armed with a knife forced his way into a house, police cruisers rushed to the area to try to catch him.
Forty minutes later, after police cordoned off a neighborhood, the suspect was found Tuesday morning.
Angel Ortiz, 46, of Boston, was arrested by officer William Devine and charged with home invasion, two counts of assault with a dangerous weapon, disturbing the peace and disorderly conduct.
The suspect was arrested after authorities received a call about a man armed with a knife who forced or was trying to force his way into a house on Royal Road about 8:35 a.m. Tuesday.
Police threw up roadblocks in the area of Royal Road and North Quincy Street and began searching for the suspect.
Lt. Kevin O'Connell said the suspect was caught within an hour by authorities.
