UPDATE: The suspect has been arraigned in 53rd District Court on a single count of Armed Robbery. His name is Steven Randall Bell. Magistrate Jerry Sherwood set a $100,000 cash/surety bond. The matter is scheduled for a Probable Cause Conference on May 17 before Judge Daniel Bain.
A suspect was apprehended Thursday evening after a reported robbery at a Brighton gas station.
Brighton Police report that officers responded at about 7:30 p.m. to the Marathon Gas station located at 8355 W. Grand River Ave. for an armed robbery.
Witnesses say the suspect, a white male, entered the gas station and produced a knife while demanding cash. After the teller gave an undetermined amount of cash to the suspect, the man fled on a bicycle.
Officers arrived on scene shortly after as did the department K9. A track was started immediately, and K9 Danko was able to track the suspect down behind the PetSmart located at 8537 W. Grand River Ave.
The suspect was taken into custody without incident and reportedly told officers he robbed the gas station, and the money was in his pocket.
The suspect was lodged in the Livingston County Jail pending arraignment.
