Robbery Suspect Sought by Sheriff's Office

On January 18th, 2016, at approximately 0110 hrs, the Kalamazoo County Sheriff’s Department was called to J&B Discount Liquor at 5061 Gull Rd for an armed robbery that had occurred. Upon arrival, Deputies located the clerk behind the counter and learned that he had been repeatedly struck with a firearm in the face and head. He was transported to a local hospital for treatment.

The suspect is described as a black male, 5’8” – 5’10”, medium/stocky build, wearing a heavy black winter coat with hood. His face was concealed with a blue scarf with a light colored pattern.  (See photos above & below)

The subject entered the store, walking directly behind the counter where he produced a hand gun and demanded money. He then assaulted the clerk and fled on foot with an undisclosed amount of cash. KDPS assisted with a short K-9 track, which led to a nearby parking lot where vehicle tracks where observed leaving the area.

Anyone having information on this incident is asked to contact the Kalamazoo County Sheriff’s Department Detectives at 269-383-8723 or Silent Observer at 269-343-2100.  Tips can also be submitted online by clicking the link on the left side of this page.
