JENISON, MI (WHTC) - An armed robbery in Jenison between two men who knew each other led to an arrest last night.
Ottawa County Sheriff’s Sergeant Christie Wendt and deputies were dispatched to Baldwin Street near River Avenue, just off of the I-196 exit, around 6:30 PM. The victim said that his wallet was taken from him at gunpoint, and that he and the suspect were acquaintances.
The victim was shaken but unhurt, while the suspect sped off to the east in a red car onto the freeway, but he was spotted by Kent County deputies and State Police troopers a short time later near the US-131/76th Street junction in Cutlerville and arrested without incident. No names were disclosed as the suspect spent the night in the Ottawa County Jail and awaits arraignment on armed robbery and felony firearms charges in Hudsonville District Court.
