DeKalb County police are looking for four suspects who broke into a home on Fields Drive in Lithonia.

Officers said around 3:30 a.m. Wednesday the suspects broke into the back window of the home and demanded money from the residents. 

According to police, the intruders were armed with a machine gun and hit one of the residents in the head with the weapon when they did not have any money to give the suspects.

That resident was taken to the hospital with minor injuries. One of the witnesses told FOX 5 the victim was her grandfather, and he's now getting stitches in the hospital. 

Eventually, the intruders took purses and phones and exited the home out the back window, according to investigators.

The suspects are described as four black males dressed in all black and were wearing ski masks.
