Atlanta police seek man who allegedly took children at gunpoint

Three children allegedly taken by their father at gunpoint from their southwest Atlanta home were found safe with relatives Wednesday, investigators told Channel 2 Action News.

Atlanta police said they still want to talk to the father, Dominique Hill, who hasn’t yet come forward.

The children — 2-year-old Dominique Williams, 4-year-old Kameria Hill and 5-year-old Tyesha Hill — were with investigators at an area hospital late Wednesday, Channel 2 reported.

Tywanna Williams said she separated from the kids’ father last year. Williams told police Hill came to her home Wednesday afternoon on Garibaldi Street and kidnapped their children at gunpoint. Police have not confirmed the mother’s account of what happened, Sgt. Warren Pickard said.

According to Williams, the children’s father loaded the gun in the house, put it in his pocket and wouldn’t tell her where he was taking the children.

She called police, according to Channel 2.

“Bring my babies back,” Williams said. “I really want my babies, and my daughter needs her medicine.”

She told Channel 2 her oldest child has cerebral palsy and needs medication.

“If she doesn’t have her medicine and you haven’t fed her, yes, there’s a chance she could have a seizure,” Williams said.

Channel 2, at the mother’s house as investigators worked the case, said police located the children about 10 p.m.

At that time, police would not confirm the use of a weapon and said they had not located or questioned the father.

“We have not identified if we are going to charge anyone,” Pickard said. “That’s a part of the investigation still being worked upon.”

No other details were released.
