A 39-year-old Waltham man is facing serious charges for allegedly forcing his way into a home and stealing a 66-year-old man's wallet.
Jose Santos, of 77 Myrtle St., is facing the following charges: larceny over $250, committing a home invasion while armed, threatening to commit a crime and assault and battery on person over 60, according to Waltham Police.
The incident began on Jan. 15 when a 66-year-old man at the rooming house at 13 Walnut St. heard somebody banging on his window, King said. The victim, however, ignored the window.
Then, the victim heard somebody banging on his door claiming to be a Waltham Police officer, King said. The victim answered the door and Santos allegedly tackled the victim, took his wallet and fled, King said. The suspect never displayed a weapon, King said.
Police responded to the scene and arrested Santos nearby, King said.
