WYOMING, Mich. — A Grand Rapids man has been sentenced for two May robberies.
Tafarious Woods was sentenced to between 12-and-a-half and 30 years for charges connected to the May 12 armed robbery at Woodland Mall and a May 26 home invasion and armed robbery in Wyoming, according to the Kent County Prosecutor’s Office.
The home invasion victim told FOX 17 in May that the robber told her that he was collecting donations for the Salvation Army, and he displayed a badge that suggested he was a representative of the non-profit.
Police say he entered her home when she went to get him a glass of water. That’s when the woman says the suspect assaulted and robbed her before he fled the area.
