CEDAR SPRINGS — Two Montcalm County residents are in jail after police responded to a robbery Friday at Cedar Springs Mobile Estates, Mobile Home Park.

The victims, a 42-year-old man and 41-year-old female, told Officer Chad Tucker of the Cedar Springs Police Department that they responded to a knock at their door about 8:20 p.m. saying “come on in” only to have two young men enter, one with a shotgun.

Once inside the men demanded money and prescription medication.

A struggle ensued with the male victim receiving injuries to his face and nose. Eventually the two suspects fled back outside without obtaining anything.

One of the suspects was known by the victims which helped in locating them at their homes somewhere in Montcalm County early Saturday morning.
The firearm was also recovered.

The two suspects, ages 19 and 20, were lodged at the Kent County Jail and will face numerous felony charges.

Both suspects were once residents of Cedar Springs.

Warrants are being sought and they are expected to be arraigned today in 63rd District Court. The investigation continues with officers interviewing three additional subjects who were waiting outside in a vehicle.
