Authorities respond to armed robbery at Meijer


PLAINFIELD TWP. (WZZM) -- Kent County deputies have arrested a 24-year-old man they say robbed a woman with a BB gun at a Meijer store.

It happened around 7 o'clock Thursday night on Plainfield Avenue. Deputies say the man approached a woman in a bathroom and told her to give him her wallet. The BB gun looked like a real gun, so she handed it over.

With the help of witnesses, deputies eventually tracked the man to a nearby apartment complex where he was arrested. Many of the victim's belongings were recovered.

The suspect's name has not been released.
