Man struck twice with pistol, shot at in Little Rock robbery

A 66-year-old man was struck twice in the head with a pistol and shot at Wednesday night during a robbery in Little Rock, authorities said.

It happened shortly after 10 p.m. at 2025 W. 27th St.

The man had stopped in the area to drive home a 21-year-old woman, and both were walking back to the man's vehicle when he was struck in the head "very hard" from behind with a pistol, according to a Little Rock Police Department report.

The gunman then pointed the weapon in the man's face and demanded his cash and cellphone. The victim handed over his money but refused to give the phone, at which point the robber "struck him again with the pistol on the right side of the head," the report states.

Police say the gunman next ordered the woman to the ground and got her cellphone and wallet before turning the gun back toward the 66-year-old man and firing one shot.

"[The victim] said he thought the suspect was going to kill him over the phone," police wrote in the report.

But the robber ultimately fled without it, heading southeast through a nearby apartment complex after firing the shot.

The report does not indicate the shot hit anyone, but it states the 66-year-old man suffered a 2-inch laceration to the top of his head and was planning to transport himself to the hospital for treatment.

Officers searched the area but didn't make an arrest.

Yeah well...unfortunately a just as many of the criminals migrate there as live there if not more. They are not originally from that area. Most times they go where they do not live to commit crimes. As a neighborhood watch person, I got tired of reporting "passerbys" for playing loud music, selling drugs, and other illegal activities. Then landlords do not do background checks. The ones that do can't rent out his or her property because decent people don't want to live next to the riff raff!!!

Why do they want to steal a phone? Obama will give them all of the phones they want for free.
