The Georgia Tech Police Department released a report yesterday that a house in the Home Park neighborhood was subjected to a forceful home invasion. The house was on Ethel Street near Hemphill Avenue. The invasion took place at approximately 11:55 p.m. when six people were in the house.

Three men who were described as black males wearing ski masks and bearing firearms kicked in the door to the apartment. The men made the six victims lie face-down on the ground while they searched the home for electronics, grabbing cash, cell phones and a laptop.

According to the at least four of the victims are Tech students. No-one was hurt during the incident, and the three men were last seen fleeing the apartment in a white, four-door compact car.
