Posted: Updated:
GWINNETT COUNTY, Ga. -

Gwinnett County police have identified a man they say held kids at gunpoint during a home invasion on Thursday.

Police say 22-year-old Derrick Rankins broke into a home on Suwanee Trail Drive and stole electronics and jewelry while holding two brothers at gunpoint.

The suspect's car was then spotted on I-85, which led to a chase that ended on the Buford Springs Connector. Rankins allegedly fled from the scene on foot.

Police said they found one weapon in Rankin's car. He's wanted on armed robbery and false imprisonment charges.
