Cops: Kids threw rocks at men, chased them, waved gun on Atlanta Beltline

Police are searching for two juveniles they say attacked men with rocks, waved a gun at them and chased them through the Atlanta Beltline, Channel 2 Action News reported.

The children, believed to be a 6-year-old and 12-year-old, asked the men Sunday if they could play on the swing at Adair Park near the Beltline’s westside trail, Atlanta police told Channel 2. 

The men said yes, but the kids threw baseball-sized rocks at them, hitting them. One of the men sustained a minor injury, Channel 2 reported. At some point, the juveniles allegedly waved a gun at the men. 

Police said the kids chased the men for about 200 yards before leaving the park. 

They were captured on surveillance video, but their faces were covered during the incident.
