    Police have arrested one suspect and are seeking others they said robbed a Gentilly Road man Sept. 27 after breaking into his home.
    Teanda Moness Brinkley, 31, Baldwin Street, is behind bars on charges on charges of  armed robbery with a knife, possession of a knife during the commission of a crime, burglary, battery, kidnapping, and two counts of entering auto, said Statesboro Police Chief Stan York.
    Det. T. Brown issued warrants for Candy Marie Lee, 18, address unavailable, on the same charges, he said. Anyone with information regarding Lee's whereabouts is asked to contact Brown at 764-9911. "This information will be held confidential," he said.
    Police are also seeking information on a third suspect known  by the street name "Keybo" or by the name Calvin Lee, he said.
    York said Savannah Police Department's forensics officer Cpl. Mike Hendrix aided the Statesboro Police Criminal Investigations Division  in identifying latent fingerprints from " an item that was removed from the inside of the residence to the outside ..." by Brinkley.
    Bulloch County Sheriff's Inv. Bill Black helped Brown locate and arrest Brinkley Wednesday, he said.
    Brinkley, Lee and the third suspect possibly known as "Keybo" or Calvin Lee entered an elderly man's Gentilly Road home Sept. 27 around 9 p. m., first breaking into two of the man's vehicles, then forcing their way into his home where he was watching TV in his bedroom, according to reports.
    The three offenders demanded cash at knife point, and after he gave them money, one suspect struck the victim, knocking off his glasses and cutting his nose, York said.
    Any information citizens may have regarding the robbery/home invasion will be kept confidential, and Brown may be reached at 764-1542 or 764-9911.
    Holli Deal Bragg may be reached at 489-9414.
