Police are seeking five men accused of robbing two apartment residents near Marietta while a one-year-old was home.

Officer Shenise Barner, a spokesperson for Cobb County Police Department, said officers were dispatched at 3:34 a.m. Friday to an apartment on Lantern Ridge Drive, off Roswell Road near Marietta. Five men had entered the apartment when two residents got home from work.

The men hit one of the residents and stole an undisclosed amount of cash, police said. The resident who was hit was treated on the scene, but was not transported to a hospital.
