ATLANTA (CBS46) -

Atlanta police are searching for a third man involved in a violent home break-in in Buckhead.

The victim told police he had left his garage door open at his home on the 3200 block of Andrews Dr. NW. That's when three men burst into the home with guns as the victim was watching television just after midnight Saturday.

One the suspects allegedly pistol whipped the man and asked him for money.

The victim was then reportedly taken upstairs to a bedroom where the three men tied him up using a T-shirt and an electrical cord.

The robbers rummaged through the home and looted it.

Among the items taken-- three watches worth about $61,500, three credit cards, two televisions and a Louis Vuitton luggage bag. They also made off with several electronics, more than $1100 in cash and another $800 in foreign currencies.

Officers were able to track down the three wanted men through the "Find My iPhone" app on the victim's cell phone the suspects allegedly stole.

Witnesses spotted the suspects pushing a 2000 Dodge pickup truck to a Chevron gas station on Spring Street. Two of the suspected men walked into the gas station to get water for the stalled truck.

They then tried to run off when police saw them.

Officers were able to catch two of the men and arrest them. They are identified as Rashawn Dickson and Andre Chambers. The third managed to escape.

Police say the truck was confirmed stolen out of Norcross. Two guns used in the crime were also reported stolen from a gun dealership in Pulaski County.
