Wal-Mart store robbed at knifepoint

Updated: Saturday, August 30, 2014

COMSTOCK TOWNSHIP, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) – Deputies are investigating after a man robs a Kalamazoo County store at knifepoint.

It happened at the Wal-Mart on Gull Road in Comstock Township, just after 12:30 a.m. Saturday. Witnesses say a man entered the store, showed a pocket knife to a cashier and demanded money.

When she didn't move fast enough, they say he poked the cashier with the knife before running away with a small amount of money.

A K-9 unit tracked the suspect from the store to an area where deputies believe he got into a vehicle and left.

Deputies describe the suspect as a black male about 40 years old, 6 feet tall and weighing 200 lbs. He was seen wearing blue pants, a tan t-shirt, work boots, a yellow and orange construction vest and yellow hard hat. He was clean shaven, with short braided hair.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Kalamazoo County Sheriff's Office or Silent Observer.
