— A Little Rock man was robbed of his wallet by a group of men who fought with him before one of them displayed a handgun, authorities said.

Josh Oliver, 32, told authorities he was at the Shell gas station at 16800 Chenal Parkway about 9:15 p.m. Monday when two men approached him and demanded his wallet, according to a Little Rock Police Department report.

Authorities say Oliver refused and began fighting with the two men. A third man then came over and displayed a handgun, at which point Oliver surrendered the wallet, the report said.

The three robbers — described as black men about 5-foot-9 and weighing about 170 pounds — fled in an unknown direction. All three robbers were said to be wearing black clothes and black masks.

Police say Oliver suffered "swollen and bruised" eyes, though he declined medical attention.

Yet another reason for concealed carry (or better - open carry).

Maybe LR Police will actually DO SOMETHING in this case, seeing as how it occurred in one of LR's more "prominent" areas...

TheBatt, I agree. Seems we are hearing about more and more robberies. Can't imagine how many we are not hearing about.

What a season fo crime this year. Out of control. Yes, TheBatt, apparently one of these thugs was carrying an open or concealed gun that you advocate. Guess you are wishing for the Wyatt Earp days, grow up.

Yeah, you wouldn't believe the ones you don't hear about. Police dispatch is streamed on the web, and about 8pm each night, things start picking up. And its a steady stream all the time. Robbery, mugging, stranger at door, gunshoots fired. You can listen here: www dot radioreference dot com/apps/audio/?action=wp&feedId=2984

You'll need to reconstruct the address yourself.

Go to face book and check out the Forbidden Hillcrest page, daily reporting and comments on crime in their area, downtown, mid town, etc. there have been 2 home invasions in the last week in Hillcrest. I'm carrying 24/7/365. There is a lot more going down than you read in the paper.
