Schools locked down after Roswell home invasion


Suspect on loose


October 18, 2013
ROSWELL, Ga. – Two Roswell schools were on lockdown Friday morning, Oct. 18, after a home invasion suspect was loose in the area.

According to Lt. James McGee, a Roswell Police spokesman, a man broke into a home on Hembree Grove Overlook, near Elkins Pointe Middle School and Hembree Springs Elementary School. The crime happened about 9 a.m.

McGee said the suspect broke into the home through a back door where he found the homeowner. The two began to fight and the suspect ran away. The victim then called police.

Dogs from Roswell and Cherokee County assisted with the manhunt, however the suspect has not yet been found.

The invasion was behind the two schools, which prompted them to go into lockdown for two hours while the hunt continued.

Police are looking for a black male, 6 feet tall, wearing blue jeans, black tennis shoes, a dark hoodie sweater, with a scruffy goatee and extreme body odor.
