No one was injured when a group of four to five armed robbers barged into a south Fulton County home early Thursday in the second violent home invasion in as many days in the southern suburbs.
Channel 2 Action News reported there were four adults and three children inside the house on Flat Shoals Road when five suspects broke through the back door about 1 a.m. Thursday.
Two of the adults hid with the children upstairs while the other two fought with the intruders, who fired three shots inside the home, according to Channel 2.
The suspects fled with cash and credit cards.
One of the people in the home said the suspects repeatedly demanded to know “Where is it at?”
No arrests have been made and the investigation is ongoing, Cpl. Kay Lester, spokeswoman for the Fulton County police, said in an email statement Thursday afternoon.
About 4:40 a.m. Wednesday, Henry County police were dispatched to a home on Zachary’s Way, Capt. Joey Smith said in an emailed statement. The homeowners told police three masked individuals kicked in the back door of the residence, forced them into one area of the home and ransacked the place.
Police were notified by a 9-year-old girl who called 911 and told dispatchers her parents and two sisters had been bound with zip ties in the master bedroom of the home.
“They were yelling, ‘U.S. Marshals, we want the drugs and the money,’” the girl’s father, Jervice Wolf, told Channel 2.
Her mother, Connie Wolf, told the station when the children started crying, the intruders told them to shut up and threatened to kill them before putting pillows over the children’s faces.
“I didn’t know if they were going to shoot them through the pillow or what,” Connie Wolf said. “I just kept praying.”
The suspects fled the home with cellphones, jewelry and some cash, Smith said.
