A waiter at a west Little Rock IHOP was robbed at gunpoint of cash while he walked from the restaurant, authorities said.

It happened about 2:20 a.m. Saturday on Hermitage Road near the restaurant's location there, which is just off Chenal Parkway.

The 20-year-old victim told investigators he was walking west from his workplace toward Wal-Mart when a tan, four-door Honda pulled up and the driver asked for a cigarette, according to a Little Rock Police Department report.

The victim reportedly gave the man a cigarette and then, after being asked, told him he was a waiter at IHOP.

"The driver then stated, 'Oh, so you got that money,'" the report said, noting the driver then pulled out a gun and demanded "everything" the victim had.

The car fled west on Hermitage after the victim handed over his cash, the report said.

The robber was described as a black man who stood about 5-foot-10 and weighed around 235 pounds. He was wearing a white T-shirt and blue jeans.

Two other people were also in the vehicle, though the report listed a detailed description for only one of them: a black man who stood about 5 foot 8 and weighed 160 pounds. He was said to be wearing a white T-shirt and black pants and to have very few teeth, according to the report.

No arrests had been made at the time of the report.

I have heard/read the complaints of a disproportionate number of black men in prison. If you read the ARDemGaz, you may understand the "disproportionate number of black men in prison".

Hey titleist and NutButter - Yes and yes, but when you make it all about race you are no different that the race-baiting Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton. The fact that blacks commit a disproportionate number of crimes has little to do with race and everything to do with culture.

I am not making it about race just pointing out the statistics blacks should stop complaining about the number of blacks arrested if they committing more crimes

AMEN, titleist10.......the PC folk look for racism in all situations. Facts are Facts!!! Do the crime, serve the time........however, the descriptions all sound the same for the scum...so, it may be difficult to distinguish one from another.

What's in the white mans culture to make them represent a disproportionate amount of child rape and child pornography from this newspaper? Let's just all sit back and think about that one for a while.
Newspaper bias? Christianity? Education? Skin color? Acceptance?

Hey 3rdWorld - Do you have any data to back up your claim? I think you are full of sh*t. Be sure and provide the data on a relative basis. For example, if black men make up 10% of the state's population and their piece of the child rape and child porn pie is 10%, nothing is disproportional. And if you have no data, S. T. F. U.
