BATTLE CREEK, Mich. (AP) – Six west Michigan teens are jailed in connection with the theft of a pair of $2,000 designer sunglasses outside a Battle Creek gas station.
The Battle Creek Police Department confirmed to FOX 17 News Sunday that a 22-year-old man told police he was in a parking lot when his Cartier sunglasses were taken at gunpoint.
The man called 911 as he drove after the group when they fled in a vehicle.
Police say the suspects stopped and fired shots at the man pursuing them. Several slugs hit his vehicle and they drove off again.
Officers arrested the four Grand Rapids males and two females – aged 16-19 – on a dead-end street. They are charged with assault with intent to murder and armed robbery.
