One man is under arrest and another is on the loose -- after a frightening home invasion in Queens.What a horrifying night for the person who lives inside the house on 63rd Road in Rego Park. Police say two men burst through the front door with guns-blazing.

It is not known right now what they took, if anything. But one person inside the home was able to get out, call police and give them a description of the two men and the car they were riding in.

Just about five blocks away police found that car crashed into a pole. They arrested one of the men inside believed to be in his 30s. But another man in his 30s got away too.

Police have not said if there were any injuries at the site of the home invasion. But we do know that one person was arrested, and police are desperately searching for another person.

The suspects are accused of bursting into the man's house with a gun.
