According to Channel 2 News, Investigators believe the suspect in a violent home invasion is a teenager.
A surveillance video surfaced of the incident involving a woman and two masked men who pointed their guns at a mother and children.
Investigators say Amanda Tanks tricked the woman inside the home to let her in. She could be heard saying on the surveillance video, “Stop playing with me.”
When the mother opened the door, police say Tanks and two masked men with guns forced their way into the home.
The mother and her young children escaped through a garage door. Police say the homeowner’s job could’ve made his family a target because he’s a partner at Medusa Lounge on Buford Highway.
Police confirmed on Tuesday, Tanks works at a strip club nearby.
Sgt. Louis Defense with the Smyrna Police Department stated: “If you know that we’re coming, the best thing for you to do is turn yourself in.”
