LITHONIA, Ga. - Two suspects, wearing police paraphernalia, tied up two people during an early-morning home invasion in Lithonia, Channel 2 Action News reporter Ryan Young confirmed.

It happened at about 4 a.m. Wednesday on Klondike Road.

Young got a first-hand account from one of the victims.

"They had AK-47s, infrared beams and kept demanding drugs," one victim said. "I don't do drugs, I don't even smoke. I work in law enforcement."

The victim said the gunmen kicked in the back door, and tied them up with duct tape. He managed to reach for his cell phone even though his hands were tied up as the gunmen searched other parts of the house.

When DeKalb and Lithonia police arrived at the scene, the suspects ran into a wooded area, investigators said.

After an extensive four-hour search involving K-9 units and helicopters, two men were apprehended. They are currently being questioned by authorities.

Police told Young that the homeowners were not injured during the ordeal.
