Atlanta Police investigate attempted break-ins

The search is on for a would-be intruder caught on surveillance video.

The man tried to break into a home in Ormewood Park on Woodland Avenue with the homeowners inside Sunday night.

Jessica Teal was watching television when she spotted the man looking through her window. She yelled at him and he hit the window and took off.

"That was the most unsettling part that he wanted to confront us while we were home and I'm not sure what he had in mind," said Teal.

The uptick in crime is unsettling to nearby residents. Atlanta Police told FOX 5 News that there have been six car break-ins around the area just in the past week. 

Anyone who recognizes the man in the video is asked to call the Atlanta Police Department.
