A Dothan man accused of robbing a convenience store says two men threatened him at gunpoint and forced him to commit the crime.

Kendrick Fitzgerald Bryant did not attend Monday's hearing, but watched and spoke through a remote camera system at the Houston County Jail.

Bryant said 19-year-old Keith Shedrick Pullin and 21-year-old Tullis Jerome Griffin, who face the same robbery charge, held a gun to his head and his son's head before the December 17th robbery of the Hop-In convenience store.

The judge set a half-million-dollar bond for Bryant who was arrested Thursday. His attorney, William Odum Junior argued that his 19-year-old client was not a flight risk because he had family in the area.

He said Bryant turned himself in and confessed of his involvement.
