Yes but to forcibly enter the residence the officers must have probable cause to believe that the person to be arrested is in the residence. If the person named in the arrest warrant is a guest at the residence, then they must obtain a search warrant to enter that residence. That is known as a Steagald warrant and they apply for the search warrant setting forth the probable cause to show the magistrate why they believe he is in that particular residence.
