One man was arrested and a second was being sought in a daylight home invasion at gunpoint on Beach 118th Street in Rockaway, police said.
Two men entered the first-floor apartment of the house around 11:30 a.m. Monday. The father of one of the three or four people inside the house at the time said one man was struck with a gun in the face during the struggle.
Police said one of the invaders was taken into custody as he left the house, and was being questioned at the 100th Precinct.
Cops were searching surrounding blocks and backyards in the residential neighborhood Monday afternoon.
It was unclear why the men entered the house.
