    Police are investigating the second violent home invasion in as many days in Providence, Rhode Island.

    Police officials say five or six armed and masked men broke into a home on Lisbon Street in Providence at 12:30 a.m.

    Two people were home at the time. The suspects robbed and assaulted a 19-year-old male in the house.

    Authorities arrested two people nearby a short time later. It is unclear if they are connected to the break-in.
