PENNFIELD TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — Police are asking the public for help finding two suspects in an armed robbery that took place at a Family Dollar near Battle Creek on Tuesday.

According to the Calhoun County Sheriff’s Office, around 7 p.m. deputies responded to the Family Dollar, located at 1585 NE Capital Ave, on reports of an armed robbery.
