DECATUR COUNTY (KWWL) -

The Iowa Department of Public Safety says a second suspect sought in a home invasion that occurred at Rep. Leonard Boswell's farm on Saturday has been arrested in Missouri.

DPS says that 19-year-old Cody John Rollins of Lamoni was arrested on Tuesday at his family's home.  He is charged with Burglary in the First Degree, Assault While Participating in a Felony, Going Armed with Intent, and three counts of Robbery in the First Degree.  He is being held in the Decatur County Jail on $50,000 bond.

Tuesday, 20-year-old David Palmer Dewberry of Fremont, Nebraska was arrested by authorities in Independence, Missouri. The man accused of attacking Boswell and his family is the son of a family friend authorities say.

According to law enforcement, an armed intruder entered Boswell's home around 10:45 p.m. Saturday, assaulted his daughter, Cindy, and demanded money.  Boswell's wife, Dody, and grandson, Mitchell Brown, were also home at the time.

The report says Boswell got into a physical altercation with the intruder until Brown came into the room with a shotgun.  That's when the intruder ran.

The incident is still under investigation.
