KALAMAZOO, Mich. — Kalamazoo County will not prosecute a man who punched people at random in two counties a month ago. According to the Kalamazoo County Sheriff’s Department, the man who was hit in the face by a sucker punch at a Meijer store at 5800 Gull Road in Kalamazoo on Jan. 25 does not want to pursue charges against his attacker, so the Kalamazoo County Prosecutor’s Office will not prosecute him.

Thirty minutes after the Meijer lot incident, the man hit another person at an Admiral convenience store at 665 Allegan Streeet in Plainwell. The Allegan County Prosecutor’s Office has not said whether charges will be filed in that case.
