According to an incident report, the victim was sitting on her couch when the three suspects burst into the home out of nowhere. Two pointed guns at her and they then stole cash, debit cards, her car keys, and then her car, which had her computer inside.

Buckhead has seen a rash of home invasions recently, leaving people who live there nervous.


“(Buckhead) is probably more of a target because it’s a wealthy, wealthy community. I understand that,” Tiffany Kent said.

Still, she says no one should have to go through what the home invasion victim went through.

“I would hate to be that person,” Kent said. “I can’t imagine having to recover from that.”

Police tracked the car for a while via the woman’s computer. They still haven’t been able to locate the car or the suspects.
