Masked trio robs Pio Nono convenience store

Three men wearing bandannas and dark clothing held up the Citgo Station at 3701 Pio Nono Ave. shortly after 11 p.m. Tuesday.

One of the men had a handgun and demanded money from the cash register as one of the clerks was knocked to the ground but was not hurt, according to a news release from the Macon Police Department.

Before leaving the men grabbed some cigarettes and a few other items as they ran out of the store into the neighborhood off of Rice Mill Road.
