A 78-year-old Cedar Springs man was arrested Tuesday after he reportedly attempted to rob Link Wireless, 25 S. Main Street.

The Kent County Sheriff Department was dispatched to a possible attempted armed robbery at the store at 2:45 p.m., November 15. The suspect was described as a man in his 70s that presented a small knife and was wearing a baseball cap. According to Deputy Joel Roon, the man was reportedly asked to leave and he did.

Deputies searched the area and located a man that fit the description a couple of blocks north of the store. Andrew Angelo DiPiazza, 78, was initially arrested on an armed robbery charge and lodged in the Kent County Jail.

The armed robbery charge was later dropped, and DiPiazza was instead arraigned on Wednesday on charges of assault with a dangerous weapon, attempted larceny from a building, and habitual offender—4th offense.
