A group of friends made an early-morning trip Tuesday to buy a new video game and ended up losing a lot more.
Four Little Rock men were walking back to their vehicle after purchasing the Grand Theft Auto 5 video game at Gamestop, 12319 Chenal Parkway, when two individuals approached them and asked for a lighter, according to a release from the Little Rock Police Department.
The men said they didn't have one, at which point one of the individuals pulled out a 9mm handgun and demanded their possessions, the release states. The victims surrendered three wallets, two cell phones, multiple credit and debit cards and the video game — a total value of about $1,500, according to the report. The robbers then fled the scene.
Authorities canvassed the area for the robbers but could not locate them. Both are described in the police report as black, standing 5-foot-7 and weighing 150 pounds. One robber is male, the report states, and was said to be wearing a green shirt and a black stocking cap. The gender of the second robber wasn't clear in the report, but that person was described as wearing a black and red hat and gray T-shirt.
No arrests have been made, and the investigation is ongoing.
