2 armed stickups near GRCC main campus
Two men are being sought in connection with two armed robberies near the main campus of Grand Rapids Community College Wednesday.
Authorities said both happened around 7:20 p.m. The first robbery happened at Lafayette and Crescent, while the second was just blocks away at Barclay and Crescent.
In each, a man was walking on the sidewalk when two men came up and asked for the time. They then demanded his wallet and other valuable.
The first victim was threatened with a gun, and police believe the second victim -- who resisted -- was hit in the face with the gun.
The suspects are described as:
-A man between 20-25, between 5-foot-5 and 5-foot-8, with a slim build and scruffy facial hair. He was wearing a dark or tan hooded sweatshirt that was pulled up.
-A black man between 20-25, around 6-foot-1, with a medium build and short black hair. He was wearing a white zip-up sweathshirt with large multi-colored stripes.
The police consider these people armed and dangerous. If you have any information, you're asked to call the GRPD at 616.456.3604 or Silent Observer at 616.774.2345.
