GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Three suspects deployed a Taser or other stun gun device on a store clerk during an armed robbery late Thursday night.

It happened at Lexa’s Groceries on Diamond NE in Grand Rapids.  Police say shortly before 11:30 p.m., three men in their late teens or early twenties walked in, and used a Taser on the employee.  They then forced him into the bathroom, and made off with an unknown amount of money.

The victim did not require hospitalization.  No suspects were taken into custody.
