Trip to buy video game ends in robbery

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.

To end this crime wave. No Parole on 2+ Convictions.
No Bail on 2+ Arrest. Pay for Jails by splitting the Lottery Money with Scholarships
That way, we cover you no matter your life decisions.

They couldn't tell the gender of one of these thugs but they knew the pistol was a 9mm?

Government subsidized housing is located within easy walking distance. Not too difficult to figure where these thugs "stays".
New York had it right with their "stop and frisk" law. Regardless, all these thugs will ever understand is two to the chest, one to the head. For $1,500 the victims could have each owned a decent concealed carry handgun. Refuse to be a victim!

Hey Jimbob47 - It's not about race. It's about culture. But yes, the overwhelming number of people now committing these crimes are black. You will also find they are overwhelmingly born to single mothers addicted to a government check and live in a household where educational attainment is discouraged and discipline from a parent a joke. It's a culture thing, Jimbob. A culture created and perpetuated by failed liberal social policies. Thank you BH Obama and all the do-gooder liberals who came before you.
