A Little Rock man was held at gunpoint Monday night in what appears to be the third robbery in two days involving a shotgun and two male robbers.
The 34-year-old male victim told police he was walking near his home at 6804 Colonel Glenn Road Lot 66 about 11 p.m. when two men approached him from behind, according to a Little Rock Police Department report. One of the men pointed a black handgun at the victim, while the other man put a sawed-off shotgun to the victim's head and asked him what he had, the report said. When the victim told the robbers he had nothing, the man wielding the shotgun ordered the victim to turn around and took the victim's wallet from his pocket, police said.
The robbers then fled west on foot, the victim told police.
Both assailants are described by the victim as black men standing 5-foot-9 and weighing 145 pounds.
The robber with the shotgun is described as having a dark complexion, light build and medium-length braided hair. He wore a white shirt and black pants, the victim said. The robber with the handgun is described as having a medium complexion, light build and possibly medium-length hair. The victim said he wore a dark shirt and dark pants at the time of the robbery.
Little Rock Police Department spokesman Sgt. Cassandra Davis was not available to comment Tuesday on whether Monday's robbery was related to two robberies that occurred Sunday on Green Mountain Drive.
Those robberies involved two assailants described as standing 5-foot-9 and weighing about 170-190 pounds — one with braided hair and a shotgun.
Davis on Monday told the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette that Sunday's robberies were "similar," and while they possibly involved the same robber, it was too early to be certain.
