Assault Suspect Apprehended
On February 9th, 2021 Public Safety responded to a business in the 1000 block of Schuster Ave for the report of an armed gunman pointing a firearm at another customer. Officers were quickly updated that an uninvolved patron inside had subdued and disarmed the attacker and was awaiting officers. Public Safety soon arrived and the suspect, a 45-year-old Kalamazoo resident, was taken into custody without further incident.
Kalamazoo Public Safety would like to extend its gratitude to the heroic patron who put the welfare and safety of their fellow citizen above their own.
Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact Kalamazoo Public Safety at (269)337-8139 or Silent Observer at (269)343-2100 or www.kalamazoosilentobserver.com.
