The suspect allegedly tried to induce the victim to repay a debt.

A 19-year-old Cambridge man was arrested on Saturday after he allegedly broke into another man’s house and held him at gunpoint in an attempt to force him to pay a debt.

Ahmed Farsab was charged with carrying a loaded firearm without a license and home invasion, as well as drug possession and trafficking.

Cambridge Police said their investigation indicated Farsab entered the victim’s home on Prospect Street through a window. Farsab then threatened the victim with a gun in an attempt to make her pay a debt she owed Farsab.

Police say the victim was able to escape and call police from a nearby business. The police responded and obtained a description from Farsab.

Police said they quickly located a driver they believed to be Farsab and stopped him at the intersection of Cambridge and Elm Street before positively identifying him.

During a search in Farsab, officers said they recovered a loaded illegal firearm, along with cash, several phones, bags of pills and marijuana, and several stolen identities. Farsab was taken into custody and his car was towed away for further investigation.

Police said they obtained a search warrant and searched Farsab’s vehicle. They said they recovered several cell phones, plastic zip-lock bags and packing materials, digital scales, methamphetamine and other narcotics, and property from the victim’s residence.

Farsab is expected to face trial soon in Cambridge District Court.
