MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

The Montgomery Police Department is looking for two robbery suspects accused of stealing cash at gunpoint from a church early Monday morning.

The armed robbery occurred at Maggie Street Baptist Church.

Authorities say a handful of employees were at the house of worship when the two men, one of them armed and masked, stole the money collected during Sunday's offering. Both men fled the scene on foot.

One of the church employees was struck by one of the suspects, but police say there were no injuries. Police won't say how much money was taken.

"Any kind of a robbery, in general, is a terrible thing, but especially when it happens at a church like this," said MPD spokeswoman Sgt. Regina Duckett. "This church is here for the community, and here for outreach purposes," she added. "It is obviously something we're not very proud to have happen here."

Police do not have any suspects in custody at this time and they weren't able to provide a detailed description of the robbers. If you have any information about this robbery, call CrimeStoppers at 215-STOP.
