Atlanta Police investigating after masked suspect tries to take child from home

APD: Child taken during home invasion

ATLANTA -- Police are investigating after someone allegedly tried to take a child from a northwest Atlanta home Saturday morning.

Police responded to the home on Washington Manor Drive NW around 8:15 a.m. after a masked suspect dressed in all black kicked in the door and entered the house.

The suspect grabbed a 1-year-old child from the house but ended up leaving the baby in the front yard and running off. 

A neighbor who spoke with 11Alive's Erin Calandra reported hearing a bang from a home, but police have not confirmed whether that noise was a gunshot or something else.

Police told 11Alive that everyone who was in the home, including the child, is OK. Investigators said no other items were taken from the residence. 

At this time, there are no suspects and police are still investigating the incident.
