The Buckhead home of former NBA star Vince Carter was robbed of nearly $100,000 on Father’s Day as his family hid in a closet.

According to the police report, Carter’s wife, Sondi was at their home and in bed with their two sons around 11:50 p.m. when she heard a loud noise downstairs.

Sondi told police she grabbed her boys and they hid in a closet.

She called 911 and then texted the neighborhood patrol. 

Officers spotted a man running from the home when they arrived, but they could not catch up with him before he hopped in a getaway car and fled the scene.
