The man told police he encountered the men Tuesday afternoon inside his home in the 1300 block of Washington Street in Easton.

He said they shot at him, but he wasn't hit.

The man told police he chased the intruders as they fled his house, but they got away.

When police got to the home, they arrested the resident on an unrelated bench warrant.
