Two men used a replica pistol to threaten a person in their Lower Hutt home, police say.
Police arrested the men, aged 31 and 32, a short distance from the Lower Hutt home after being called just after midnight on Sunday, Detective Senior Sergeant Martin Todd says.
During the arrest, the officers found a replica pistol, he said.
The two Lower Hutt men are due to appear in the Hutt Valley District Court charged with aggravated robbery.
The 31-year-old is also charged with possession of a meth pipe and an offensive weapon.
