(SALEM, Ore. ) - An alert Salem Police Officer took into custody the man police say pulled a firearm on Target Store Security Officers after they confronted him following an armed robbery on Monday.

Marion County Sheriff's spokesman Sergeant Chris Baldridge says around 7:30 p.m. Tuesday evening, Salem officer Laura Seefeldt, spotted a male matching the description of the suspect who was involved in an armed robbery at Target on July 14th.

The male suspect, identified as 28-year-old Kraig James Fox of Keizer, was walking on D Street near the I-5 overpass. Fox was taken into custody, and was arrested on outstanding warrants for parole violation and is lodged in the Marion County Jail.

Once Fox has been interviewed by Marion County Sheriff's Office Detectives, it is expected he will face charges associated with the robbery. Those exact charges have not yet been determined by detectives, Baldridge said.

Target stores.... The new streets of Chicago.

A gun in a Gun Free zone? Those Moms lie.

Alex July 23, 2014 7:59 am (Pacific time)

Impossible! Target is a gun free (victim disarmament) zone. Clearly the man does not know that guns aren't allowed in Target. SMH. How dare a criminal breaks the law!

RTC July 23, 2014 7:49 am (Pacific time)

What do they expect ... every employee wears a "target" on their back ....

Aaron July 23, 2014 7:08 am (Pacific time)

No, Target is only a "gun free zone" for law abding citizens, criminals are free to do whatever they want!

Ralphie Wiggum July 23, 2014 7:01 am (Pacific time)

Guns at Target? That's un-possible!

Joe July 23, 2014 6:57 am (Pacific time)

The customers at Target literally have a target on their backs.

Not allowing legal carry of firearms by licensed citizens in their stores makes them an easy "Target" for criminals.

criminals prey on gun free zones. But hey if the moonies want them to be gun free, let them shop in the big red targets now. I'll refrain.

Wow... this incident is Target's fault - they clearly did not post the gun free zone properly. Or did not advertise it on the websites the man browses... It could also be the school system's fault - maybe he cannot read that well, and Target should ask their greeters to read the policy to every patron. This will definitely eliminate crime in Target.

Hmmm ... seems only CRIMINALS ignore the "gun free zone" signs at target.

James July 23, 2014 5:40 am (Pacific time)

This story must be false. Target declared itself to a "Gun Free Zone".
