Surveillance video shows Kalamazoo party store robbery

KALAMAZOO, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - New surveillance video shows the moments a Kalamazoo party store clerk grabbed a gun away from a robber.

It happened late last night at the Campus Party Store, on West Michigan Avenue.

In the video, you can see the masked suspect pointing a gun and demanding money from the clerk.

The clerk goes along with the demand, but out of nowhere, grabs the robber's gun moments after he put it down.

Police believe this is the same suspect who tried to rob DN's Liquor Store in Portage just two hours before that.

We talked to the owner of that store who said clerks need to be more alert at night, and every store should have security cameras.

The Kalamazoo Department of Public Safety is also still looking for three armed men who robbed the Sunny Mart on Cork Street on Saturday.

Police believe those men are dangerous, but not connected to the robberies from last night.
