Two men armed with a large sword kicked in the front door of an East Side home early Monday morning, during a home invasion that left one of the occupants stabbed in the left leg, Ferry-Fillmore District police reported.

The woman who was stabbed was taken to Erie County Medical Center for treatment, following the invasion that occurred a few minutes after midnight on Herman Street, west of Fillmore Avenue, between Broadway and Sycamore Street, authorities said.

Police arrested one of two suspects, charging Antoine Sanders, 21, of Glenwood Avenue, with assault, burglary, weapons possession and criminal mischief, among other charges, according to police reports. Detectives still are looking for the second suspect.
