Police investigate robbery, carjacking at The Lakes Mall


MUSKGEON, Mich. (WOOD) — Police are working to identify the suspect in a robbery and carjacking at The Lakes Mall in Muskegon.

The Fruitport Police Department responded to The Lakes Mall on Harvey Street after receiving a call about a shoplifting in progress around 3:15 p.m. Monday.

The suspect was able to get away from loss prevention employees and left the mall where he then forced his way into a vehicle being driven by a 43-year-old woman.

Police say the suspect drove the vehicle about one mile before he stopped and told the victim to get out of the car. She was not hurt and her vehicle was found a short time later.

Investigators are reviewing video surveillance of the suspect in order to confirm his identity. Police have not yet released that video.
