GERMANTOWN, TN (WMC) -

Germantown police arrested two men they said burglarized a home in Germantown on Wednesday.

Diego Resendez, 19, and Ivan Angeles, 19, were both arrested Thursday for the burglary.

According to police, just before 1 p.m., Resendez and Angeles forced their way into a home in the 1800 block of River Valley Drive while one person was at home.

"It does worry you that that is happening around here," said homeowner Jason Rhae.  Rhae said the family member who was home called him immediately.

"I walked into the backyard and noticed the back door was smashed in," Rhae added.

Rhae said his power tools were missing. He then saw the two burglars as he entered the house.

"One of them was coming down and had a couple of antique guns in his hands," said Rhae. "I confronted him and took them back."

Rhae then said one of the men jumped from an upstairs window to escape while he chased the other one into the front yard.

The men left in an older model grey Ford pickup truck. No one was injured.

"You've got someone who is bold enough to enter the home with all these people who are home during the day," Rhae added.

Though Rhae protects his home with surveillance cameras and plans on beefing up his security even more, he isn't sure he could have prevented what happened at his home.

"If someone wants to get in, they are going to get in."

Resendez and Angeles are both charged with aggravated burglary and theft of property. Their bond is set at $250,000 each, and they're expected in court on August 5.
