One suspect is in custody, and two men are being sought by police, in connection with the attempted robbery of a Dougherty County man early Tuesday morning.

About midnight, 45-year old Calvin Beckhom was with a friend in the alley off Marie Road when a masked man tried to rob him at gunpoint. 

Beckhom drove away, but said the robber followed him to his home on East Park Court. 

Beckhom called 911, and the robbers tried to drive away when police showed up. "Our officers were able to stop the vehicle there on East Park Court near Pine Bluff Road.  Two of the passengers did flee the scene on foot, but the driver was taken into custody," said DCP Lt. Chad Kirkpatrick.

27-year-old Jamel Miller is being held on driving with a suspended license charges. He has not been charged in the attempted robbery as the investigation continues.

Police did recover a handgun and masks in the car.
