Authorities are searching for a man who robbed two Little Rock restaurant employees at gunpoint early Wednesday morning.
The employees were leaving Applebee’s, 12110 Chenal Parkway, around 1:30 a.m. when an unidentified man jumped out from behind their vehicle holding a handgun and demanded the victims reopen the restaurant and give him money from the cash registers, a Little Rock Police Department report states.
The man led the victims back into the restaurant at gunpoint, where the employees gave the gunman an unknown amount of money from a back room in the business, according to the report. The gunman then told the victims to wait 10 minutes before leaving.
After about two minutes, the report states, one of the victims called police. The victims described the robber as a black man standing 5 foot 7 and weighing 130 pounds.
