Two robbed for second time outside home, police say

By Gavin Lesnick

A man and a teen were robbed outside their residence in the 5500 block of Base Line Road on Monday night, the second time they've been held up there in as many months, police said.

The 14- and 49-year-old victims told authorities they stepped outside to smoke a cigarette about 9 p.m. when two men approached and pointed handguns at them, according to a Little Rock Police Department report.

The assailants demanded and received money and a cellphone before running toward Base Line Road.

Police searched the area but didn't locate the robbers.

The victims said the gunmen — described as black men 18 to 22 years old who stood 5-foot-7 and weighed about 130 pounds — were the same people who robbed them at the location the morning of Dec. 7.

Why do they steal the phones? They are probably too damned stupid to use it.

Three thoughts come to mind: 1) Fool me once shame on you ... Fool me twice shame on me, 2) Why is a 49 year old letting a 14 year old smoke, and 3) Why is the headline not "Intended Robbery Victim Wastes Thug Trash During Second Robbery Attempt in as Many Months"?

1-Smoking is hazardous to your health. 2-It's time to move. 3-Or it's time to buy a gun yourself. 4-I don't think we have all the facts here.

As most clever ideas go, this one resides in the fringe category of lead balloons that never lift off the pad, but titillating to contemplate, nonetheless. Let’s make compulsory in all public schools that the Police Beat (or its equivalent) be read by, or read to, all students each day it is published. Also, the sentences rendered by the courts for all offenders in the respective locale. Yes, it’s wild. But with only a little tongue-in cheek, I believe that the great majority of folks committing the dumbest crimes are living in some kind of self-denying world that most of us can never comprehend. Yeah, this won’t work in all cases. But maybe there is a teacher or two who actually get this done. Of course he/she would be immediately charged with some sort of heinous social offense…. But just thinking.

Elsewhere in the ADG:
A man and his roommate were robbed at gunpoint Monday night when they stepped outside to smoke a cigarette, police reported. Lazaro Unizar and his 14-year-old roommate were outside their home in the 5500 block of Base Line Road when two armed men stole their cash and a cellphone about 9 p.m. Unizar, 49, told officers the same men robbed them last month at the same location, according to the report.
My Question: 49 yr old man has a 14 yr old roommate....just wondering !?!?
