Ellenwood, GA - Police are searching for 14-year-old Ayvani Hope Perez after she was abducted from her home during a home invasion early Tuesday.
Clayton County police spokesman Phong Nguyen said that two black males pried open a back door of the home about 2:15 a.m. The mother tried hiding with her two children, but the two gunmen found them and demanded money and jewelry.
When the woman told the intruders that she did not have either of those two things, the suspects shot the family dog and took Ayvani Hope Perez with them. She was last seen being taken from the home in a gray Dodge, wearing her Star Wars pajamas.
Nguyen said the home invasion was apparently random, and that the family did not know the two men.“It didn’t appear that they knew each other,” he said. “They just moved in about a month ago.”
Georgia Bureau of Investigation has released sketches of the suspects that have posted below. Anyone with information on Perez — described as Hispanic, 4 feet, 9 inches tall and 93 pounds — or the suspects, should call 911 or Clayton County police at 678-610-4781.Abduction, Ayvani Hope Perez, Crime, Georgia, Home Invasion, Missing Person
