Man escapes home invasion attempt
•NORCROSS - Two men forced entry to an apartment Wednesday on Chelsea Park Lane and made an unsuccessful attempt to rob residents.
One of the victims heard a knock at the front door at 10:36 p.m. and looked out the peephole to see a light-skinned black woman, according to a police report. When he opened the door, two unidentified men armed with guns forced their way inside and said "give it up," the report stated.
A roommate ran to the back of the apartment and jumped out of a bedroom window. The intruder panicked after the roommate escaped and left without taking anything, according to the report.
One of the intruders was described as a black man with dread locks and the other was a black man with a light complexion wearing a red hat.
