DPD investigates reported home invasion burglary

The Dalton Police Department is investigating a reported home invasion burglary from the early morning hours of Thursday. During the incident a handgun was fired before the suspects fled with nearly $3,000 in cash and also the victims’ bank cards.  

The incident happened shortly after midnight at an apartment at 2214 Raintree Way. The victims told investigators they were asleep in their bedroom when they heard their front door being kicked in. One victim told investigators he went downstairs to check and that he was confronted by three black males wearing dark-colored hooded sweatshirts who demanded money. At least one of the suspects was armed with a silver handgun. One victim told investigators that after a brief struggle he fled to a neighboring apartment to call 911. He told investigators that as he ran from the apartment after confronting the three suspects he heard a gunshot behind him. Nobody was injured.  

The suspects then confronted the female victim and demanded money. They stole her purse which had approximately $2,800 in cash and also the victims’ bank cards.  

Anyone with information on this incident is asked to please contact Detective Jason Thompson at (706) 278-9085, ext. 174.
