Officials said a victim called 911 at 10:40 p.m. on Monday saying that two masked suspects entered their home on Barnesley Lane holding handguns.

Three women were home at the time, one in her 20s and her two grandmothers, both in their 70s. The suspects assaulted one of the grandmothers, hitting her in the face. Then, they zip-tied all three victims' hands behind their backs. 

According to police, the suspects stole a safe, $80,000 in cash, and the victims' jewelry. They fled in one of the victims' cars, police said.

The car was later discovered near Kimball Bridge Road abandoned. No suspects have been arrested in the crime.

Detectives told FOX 5 they think the gunmen targeted the home.

Police are asking anyone with information to call the Alpharetta Crime Stoppers Tip Hotline at 678-297-6307.
