— A Louisiana man was robbed at gunpoint Friday as he was getting out of his car at a parking lot in Little Rock's River Market district, authorities said.

Hansen Beau Johnston, 24, of Monroe, La., told investigators he was parking his vehicle in the lot at 100 Scott St. about 7:20 p.m. when a man exited a small white car, approached him and pointed a handgun at him.

The robber demanded Johnston hand over his wallet, keys and cell phone and then get on the ground. The robber then got into Johnston's car and fled in it.

Police used an application on Johnston's phone to track it to an apartment complex in the 5500 block of West 51st Street. The stolen vehicle was located and recovered there, but there was no sign of the other property or the robber.

The robber is described as a black man between 18 and 25 years old who is about 5-foot-8 and 160 pounds. He was wearing a black hoodie and bluejeans.

The city needs to get this downtown robberies situation under control. I am reading about incedents like this more and more.

Every time I wear one of mine I get an overwhelming urge to rob someone at gunpoint. Must be the garment that is the problem.

If it had been that Doctor on Cantrell, the robber would need a casket by now.

If social workers are not making sure that kids are in decent homes, if there are no truancy officers keeping the kids in schools, and if the schools are not teaching the kids employable skills, Little Rock is going to have high rates of crime. Ignorance, drugs, high rates of teenage pregnancy and single motherhood produce crime. Citizens need to demand better schools and better social services. Apathy and acceptance reigns.

Populist.... do you really think better schools, truancy officers, social workers are the answers, really??????????? How about a parent who spends a little time teaching their children right from wrong. When children are raised like dogs, they act like dogs. The government is not your baby's daddy!!!!

Populist, Do you look to the Government for everything in your life? You are what's wrong with America my friend.
