A 14-year-old Atlanta girl, Ayvani Hope Perez, was abducted by two armed home invaders early Tuesday who later demanded a ransom of $10,000 for the girl's return, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported. Police have issued an alert looking for the two men, the girl, and a gray Dodge vehicle.

Perez was taken from her home in Clayton County after two men broke open a door of the home about 2:15 a.m. Perez’s mother was in the home and tried unsuccessfully to hide her children, Ayvani and her 15-year-old brother. But the two men found the family and demanded money and jewelry, according to news reports.

“She did not have any money and jewelry so they shot the dog and kidnapped the 14-year-old,” a police spokesperson told the AJC.

Sketches of the two men were released by police around noon.

Ayvani Perez was last seen wearing blue and gray Star Wars pajama bottoms and a blue and gray “Super Hero” shirt. She is Hispanic with brown eyes and black hair, and is 4 feet, 9 inches tall and weighes around 93 pounds, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation’s Levi Alert said.

The suspects did not appear to know the Perez family, the AJC reported. Neighbors in the small Ellenwood, Ga., town were scared.

“I’m stunned that that would happen,” Maties Otalis told the AJC. “We always have police around this area,” the father of four said. “I don’t expect such to happen in my neighborhood. I feel like moving out of this area.”
