WYOMING, Mich. (WOOD) — Police say they are searching for two suspects who robbed a cellphone store in Wyoming Tuesday evening.

The robbery happened around 6:25 p.m. at the Verizon cellphone store on Byron Center Avenue SW just north of M-6.

The Wyoming Department of Public Safety says two men went into the store. One of them grabbed an employee and took the person to the back of the store.

The men implied that they had a gun. It’s unclear if the suspects actually had a weapon.
