Bishop recalled the events in a video posted on Facebook, in which he described how one of the suspects “put a gun to my back” and “had a gun to my 8-month-old’s face.”

“They took my watch, my jewelry, my bishop’s ring, my wedding band … they took my bishop’s cross and then I had chains under my shirt,” he said.

Whitehead described how he knew the suspects were “sent,” and that the gunman who robbed him “tore off my collar to get at my jewelry.”
