Arkansas Gov. Mike Beebe's deputy chief of staff was assaulted and robbed at gunpoint early Thursday morning, according to a report from the Little Rock Police Department.
The report states Lamar Davis, 42, was on Asher Avenue driving to a night club about 1 a.m. when three younger black males flagged him down. The men displayed a gun and hit Davis in the head multiple times and forced him into the passenger side of a "newer" model Dodge Ram truck, according to the report. They drove to the Arvest Bank at 19th Street and University Avenue where he withdrew $300 in cash, police said.
Davis was then driven to the intersection of 19th and Tyler streets, where he was told by the assailants to lay facedown on the ground while the men fled in the truck, the report said. Davis later told officers that the attackers threatened to kill his family if he went to the police, according to the report.
Authorities located the truck, leading to a short pursuit that ended when the truck crashed on the campus of the University of Arkansas at Little Rock. The suspects, who got away with the $300 in cash, a wallet and various credit cards belonging to Davis, then fled on foot and were not captured, police said.
No arrests have been made, and the investigation is ongoing.
