“The sheriff and the sheriff, they got out of the car and three guys came back and said ‘you guys screwed us up,'” the victim told the outlet. “All of a sudden, I started seeing guns coming out. My take is, people have been evicted, and now you’re going to go get their TV with a gun.”

As of last week, Atlanta police were still looking for the suspect.

“It was kicking people and they fell,” the victim, who declined to be named for safety reasons, told the media. “They were hiding behind dressers and under mattresses.

Anyone who assists in apprehending the suspect will receive a $2,000 reward.
