Robber hops counter at Dunkin Donuts, grabs cash

A Dunkin Donuts in Little Rock was robbed Thursday night by a man who jumped the counter and pulled out a gun, authorities said.

Little Rock Police Department Sgt. Cassandra Davis said it happened about 7:40 p.m. at the Cantrell Road location.

Davis said the robber first jumped the counter and grabbed cash out of a register before pulling out a handgun and forcing employees to open the safe. He got away with an undisclosed amount of cash.

The robber is described as a black man, 6 feet tall and 165 pounds. He was wearing a black jacket, dark jeans and a black-and-white knit cap. He ran south from the business.

Davis said police are looking into whether this robbery is tied to other restaurant robberies. Sonic and Denny's have been held up in Little Rock in recent days.

"It's too early to tell now," Davis said. "It's a possibility."

It was a good thing that was a gun safe area or something bad could have happened.
