    NORTH FULTON COUNTY, Ga. - Police are searching for two men who kicked down a woman’s back door and robbed her of cash. 

    The armed robbery happened just after noon Wednesday at a home on Thompson Drive in Alpharetta, police said. 

    Channel 2’s Mike Petchenik learned the victim called 911 when she heard a commotion outside of her home. Dispatchers could hear the entire crime.

    Police said two men with guns barged in and demanded cash from the victim and two others inside the home. 

    After getting the cash, they took off, police said.


    Police said the two men drove off in a silver Nissan minivan,

    "As far as what the victim stated, she has no idea who these individuals were," Alpharetta Police Spokesperson Jason Muenzer.

    Neighbors said they were shocked to hear of the crime happening in their area.

    "To happen to anybody that's shocking. Especially around here. Avalon is just three blocks away. They're building this all up. Yes, it's very shocking," said neighbor Lloyd Davis.

    A woman in the home told Petchenik she was too afraid to speak about what happened. Davis said he can understand why and hopes cops catch the home invaders.

    "I hope they pay. Hope they pay dearly. I can't imagine what these people are going through right now," Davis said.

    Investigators have put out a lookout to surrounding police departments. They ask anyone with information to give them a call.
