— Authorities are looking for three men who held up a Taco Bell/KFC restaurant and some of the customers inside in the latest in a string of recent fast food business robberies in Little Rock.

Little Rock Police Department Sgt. Cassandra Davis said it's not known if the latest robbery, which occurred about 8 p.m. Tuesday at the location at 4424 W. Markham St., is tied to any of the others in recent days.

"At this point, we can't say," Davis said. "We're looking at it to see if it's related."

According to an incident report, the robbers entered the restaurant brandishing guns and forced the manager to open the safe. After getting that cash, they ordered the customers to the ground and robbed some of them of their wallets.

No injuries were reported.

The robbers are described as black men who were wearing dark hoodies and dark pants with bandannas covering their faces. They left the area on foot.

The Taco Bell/KFC robbery comes on the heels of several business robberies in recent weeks in Little Rock, including some at other fast food restaurants. The Wendy's at 10623 W. Markham St. was robbed Sunday night and another Wendy's at 7312 Cantrell Road was held up Dec. 12. Early Monday morning, a robber attempted to hold up the Taco Bell at 9600 N. Rodney Parham Road.

No arrests have been made in any of the cases.

Black men wearing hoodies - I don't think it is racial profiling if it is the truth.

I hate Taco Bell. But I'm getting an urge to spend a lot of time in the dinning area.

Just one more reason to stay away from fast food.

The leaders in Little Rock and Pulaski including the police have pretty much ceded control to a bunch of young thugs. They can rob and committ any crime they want without fear of being caught or being prosecuted. Boy, the NRA, NCAAP and ACLU must be proud.

@Pobucker: Why not ban bandannas as well? Plus Skittles and AriZona iced tea while you're at it? I betcha some of you "ban hoodies" types would SCREAM at the thought of banning guns because of the Sandy Hook massacre. Same principle applies: Hoodies don't rob stores; if you make hoodies a crime only the criminals will have hoodies...

Well, only if a customer was in there with his concealed weapon those pitiful weak no goods would had left the place in a different fashion. ON THEIR BACKS. Gun Control is good if you can put the round between the eyes of the low down cowards that rob people of their hard earned money while they sit on their azzes drinking a 40 and smoking skunk weed..
