Pocatello police are looking for a second suspect they believe was involved in a home invasion on Christmas Eve.

Police issued a warrant for Shawn Petersen, 43.  They described him as a black male, 5 feet 11 inches tall, 210 pounds with black hair and brown eyes.

Police arrested Jesse Savala on Friday. They said the two men went to a home at around 9:30 p.m., knocked on the door and when the victim answered the door forced their way inside beating the victim and demanding money.

Police said the men are being charged with robbery. A $50,000 bond has been set for Petersen.

Anyone who has information on Petersen's location are asked to call Pocatello police dispatch at (208) 234-6100.
