    A Lynn, Massachusetts homeowner held off a pair of armed burglars using a machete on Monday night.

    Evan Luongo said he goes to bed early and was trying to sleep just before 8 p.m. Monday when he heard breaking glass. He got up to find a door in his home closed with a light on.

    Knowing someone was inside, he grabbed his machete and prepared to open the door.

    "I can be fairly intimidating looking, I guess... waving a machete," Luongo said. "He pulled a knife on me as I reached the door, but he was shaking so much that he didn't have a real good grip on it. The other one pulled out his little pellet gun. Then I just screamed at them to drop their weapons and kick their weapons at me."
