Philadelphia Police say they have found a small arsenal during a raid on a house in the city's Lawndale section.

The raid happened at 6424 Shelbourne Street. Action News was there as police walked out of the home with close to 100 guns, many of them high-powered rifles equipped with laser scopes.

Police raided the home of 50-year old Ernest Aguilera's home after an early-morning incident. Neighbor Freddie Kammer says the man pointed a gun at his son's head and said "smile."

"My son stopped in the middle of the street. Next thing we know, my daughter came out of the house and saw he had a red laser on him."

Aguilera has been arrested for assault, possession of an instrument of crime, terroristic threats, and reckless endangerment of another person. Police got a search warrant, searched the home, and found the arsenal.
