Authorities are looking for a pair of robbers who forced employees and customers at a Little Rock Wendy's into a cooler while they made off with cash.

It happened just after 9:30 p.m. Friday at the Wendy's at 11319 N. Rodney Parham Road.

According to a Little Rock Police Department report, the two men were armed with handguns when they entered the restaurant and demanded money.

Police say the two men forced employees and two customers into the cooler and then had them surrender their phones while the manager emptied the registers and the safe.

A witness followed the robbers as they left the premises in a blue 1980s Chevrolet Impala, but he lost track of the vehicle on Interstate 630.

The robbers were described as black men between 18 and 25 years old. One was about 6-foot-1, weighed 150 pounds, had a thin mustache and wore all red except for silver jeans. The other was said to be about 6- feet tall and 150 pounds. He was wearing a black sweatshirt with Hello Kitty in stones on the back.

No arrests have been made.

It just isn't safe to go out at night in Little Rock.

What is happening in our town? Stopping this kind of thing (which is definitely increasing instead!) should be the city's top priority! Both government and citizenry. Is anyone working on a solution? This is not business as usual in LR. It is a major problem that threatens the future of our beautiful city. People can't be afraid to go out for a burger. What are we doing Stodola?

bclem, I don't think the home invasions will ever be a problem because the thugs know that many arkansans are armed and waiting.

Wendy's & Walgreens are patronized by black, white, Asian, Hispanic....and the employees usually represent all races too so it's everybody's problem. I really feel for the typically young employees having this fearful experience. It wouldn't bother me one bit to see someone pop out their concealed weapon and blow these robbers away!

These stories need a happy ending.. The one where someone steps up and puts an END to these thugs on the spot.. I just hope it's caught on tape and they loop it all over the web....

As far as police meetings, they would probably say to give up your belongings and head into the cooler....the city council is a joke, as is the mayor.
