KALAMAZOO TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — Police are asking for the public’s help to identify a suspect after three men were robbed at gunpoint in their Kalamazoo-area apartment early Thursday afternoon.

It happened around 12:30 p.m. in the 300 block of South Kendall off of Howard Street in Kalamazoo Township.

The three men in the apartment — all 21 or 22 years old — told investigators that when they answered a knock at their door, a stranger with a handgun threatened them. The Kalamazoo Township Police Department says the suspect made off with case and other items, but didn’t hurt anyone.

Witnesses said the robber was a black man in his mid-20s with a goatee. He stood about 5-foot-9 and weighed 135 pounds. He was last seen wearing a blue jacket, dark-colored pants and blue tennis shoes.

Police say another person of interest wanted for questioning has been excluded in the case and has no relationship with the suspect in this matter.

Anyone with information about the suspect or the robbery is asked to call police at 269.343.0568 or Silent Observer at 269.343.2100.
