Snape overheard the prophecy about someone who's birthday was around the end of July being the downfall of Voldemort and told him. Voldemort then went out and started torturing/killing all those who knew the Potters in an effort to find them. He thought that if he could kill Harry as a child, he would avoid being defeated by him as an adult.
