OTTAWA COUNTY, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Deputies in Ottawa County are looking into a robbery and abduction from early Thursday morning.

According to reports, a 24-year-old female was parked in her vehicle at Brook Meadow Apartments, when a black man got into her car, pulled a knife, and demanded that she drive to Grand Rapids.

As she reached the west side of the city, the suspect made her withdraw money from an ATM, and drop him off in the area of Fulton and Lane.

The woman then immediately drove to a police substation.

The suspect is described as a black man, weighing about 180 pounds, between 20 and 30 years of age, and has a beard. He was wearing a white ball cap with a blue bill, a white t-shirt, and khaki-style cut-off cargo shorts.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact Silent Observer.
