They had a car parked in front of the church next door, and the three took off immediately after the incident.

Davenport said police did not arrive until the robbery was over, and Brundidge Police and the Pike County Sheriff’s Department are seeking suspects that are black males, ranging in height from approximately 6-foot 3-inches tall, 5-foot 9-inches tall and the third with a shorter and heavier build.

All three were dressed in hooded sweatshirts, one with fur around the collar. Another of the suspects was wearing a white and black bandana over his face.

Davenport said officers have sent K-9 units around the scene as part of the investigation.

This is the second time in the last few months this town store was robbed.

On Dec. 8, Antonio Alexis, 18, was arrested and charged with robbing the Corner Store.

Allegedly, Davenport said Alexis walked into the convenient store early Dec. 8, held a gun to the clerk and walked away with cash from the register. Police continue to investigate this incident, and anyone with information concerning Monday’s robbery should contact the Brundidge Police at 735-3333.
