Atlanta Police want to find the two men caught on camera trying to break into a house on the city's southwest side.

The man who lives in the house says he and his family were asleep when the brazen suspects made their attempt. This all played out around 1:15 a.m. on Farrington Ave SE.

"When we woke up in the morning and came downstairs we quickly realized what happened," says the homeowner.

He looked at the video recorded by his doorbell and saw one of the men kicking the door.

"Panic (set in) at first, and then (I was) just very grateful that nothing happened and my family was safe," says the homeowner. "I saw that the guy had a gun and they were possibly very close to killing someone."

Atlanta Police hope anyone with information about the Monday morning incident will call Crime Stoppers.
