Little Rock police are looking for a two men who they say hog-tied another man to steal his cellphone and wallet on New Year's Day.
The robbery occurred about 8:45 p.m. at a home at 1624 College St., according to a Little Rock Police Department report.
One of the residents, 48-year-old Gregory Dobbins, told police he was hosting a cookout for his family and friends Wednesday evening and everyone except Donald Johnson, 43 — who also lives in the home — had left.
When Dobbins returned, he told police, two men threw him on the ground and bound his hands with a shoelace and an extension cord, and his feet with another extension cord.
They stole his wallet, which contained about $20 in cash, an identification card and a bank card, the report states.
Dobbins said Johnson gave one of the robbers a handgun that they pointed at Dobbins, the report states. The robbers demanded Dobbins tell them his bank card's PIN number and fired one gunshot at the front door before giving the gun back to Johnson and fleeing in an unknown direction, according to the report.
Officers said that Dobbins appeared "very intoxicated," the report states. Johnson, who police said also appeared intoxicated, was sitting on the couch and told authorities that he was asleep during the robbery. He denied having any involvement and said he did not know who the robbers were, according to the report.
Johnson later told police that he does own a handgun and that he always puts 10 rounds in it. Officers counted 10 rounds in the gun. Johnson said he would leave the house to "prevent any further disturbance."
Police describe the robbers as both black men between 18 and 22 years old and weighing about 180 pounds. One suspect stands about 5-foot-8 and was last seen wearing a white T-shirt. The other suspect stands about 6 feet tall and was last seen wearing a red pullover and red pants.
