Posted: Updated:

FOREST PARK, Ga. (AP) - Police south of Atlanta are on the lookout for two gunmen who stole Christmas presents and electronic items from a 9-year-old boy and his grandparents.

WXIA-TV reports (http://on.11alive.com/1bTt5Fq) that home invaders broke into the house in Forest Park through an unlocked door around 8:30 p.m. Monday, as the boy played video games on the couch. Police say one of the suspects held the family at gunpoint while the other grabbed items throughout the home.

Forest Park police Lt. Wesley Elliott said the suspects made off with about $800 worth of gifts, electronics and household items, including a comforter.

No one was hurt, but the boy's grandparents said he was very emotional about what happened.

Police said they have only a vague description of the suspects.
