GIRARD TOWNSHIP, Mich. - Authorities say a 38-year-old man suspected of a robbery in Indiana fled to Michigan, where he took a person hostage inside an adult novelty store.
Branch County sheriff's officials tell WOOD-TV that the man was arrested following a standoff Tuesday at the Lion's Den Adult Superstore. It's in Girard Township, near Coldwater.

Michigan State Police Lt. David Wood says a police dispatcher was able to establish a rapport with the man by phone, and she was able to persuade him to come out and surrender.
