A New Bedford man is accused of forcing his way into a Fairhaven apartment.

Horace Blake, 26, was charged with assault and battery, armed robbery and home invasion while armed with a firearm.

Police said Blake forced his way into an apartment at 21 Bridge St. at about 9 a.m. Tuesday. He told the tenants he had a gun, then grabbed a laptop computer and fled.

The New Bedford Police Department Gang Unit arrested him later that afternoon.

Police said it appears Blake was looking for someone who previously lived in the apartment.
