Little Rock police say they are searching for a woman accused of robbing two sandwich shops in three days.

The most recent robbery reportedly occurred around 7 a.m. Tuesday at the Subway at 6701 W. 12th St.

An employee at that location told officers that she saw a male driver in a silver sedan just before she opened the store. According to a Little Rock Police Department report, she said she assumed he was checking the restaurant's business hours and went to the back to smoke after unlocking the front door.

A few minutes later, the employee told officers, she heard the door chime and walked to the front of the store. At first, she saw no one, she said, but when she approached the office door, she found a woman holding a steak knife and wearing a baby blanket across her face, the report states.

The employee said she led the woman to the cash register and opened the drawer. After taking an undisclosed amount of cash, the woman reportedly fled through the front door and got into a silver sedan with the driver the employee had seen earlier.

Police believe the same woman was involved in a robbery Sunday morning at a Subway location̶ j̶u̶s̶t̶ ̶1̶.̶5̶ ̶m̶i̶l̶e̶s̶ ̶a̶w̶a̶y̶,̶ ̶a̶c̶r̶o̶s̶s̶ ̶f̶r̶o̶m̶ ̶W̶a̶r̶ ̶M̶e̶m̶o̶r̶i̶a̶l̶ ̶S̶t̶a̶d̶i̶u̶m̶ . in the 10500 block of West Markham Street. That robbery at the eatery also involved a kitchen knife, according to the police report.

In a social media post Tuesday, police described the robber as a black woman in her 20s. She stands about 5 feet 8 inches tall and weighs around 150 pounds. She should be considered “armed and dangerous,”police said.

*CORRECTION: A previous version of this story listed an incorrect location for one of the Subways that were robbed.

The Subway across from War Memorial Stadium is 100 N. Van Buren, i.e., the 5100 block of West Markham. 10500 West Markham is at the I-430 overpass. So which one was it?

"... she found a woman holding a steak knife ..." Too bad this was not a case of bringing a knife to a gun fight ... maybe her next intended victim will splatter her brains to and fro and rid the planet of one more parasite.

Another version of this same incident said the robber/woman was black and the get away driver was a white man. I cant understand why the ArDemGaz puts out 2, 3, 4 different versions of the same crime over a day or two. Training for the reporters ?

who trained this employee to unlock the business front door and the office then leave them unattended ? Is it too soon to say that she might have been x-navy?

Too bad a good guy with a gun wasn't there to offer her and her driver some "corrective action."

As reported by both Fox 16 and ArkMatters Channel 4.

The woman (see picture) is further described as about 5'8" tall, 150-160 pounds, in her mid 20's. She was wearing a black coat, dark pants and a white cloth (possibly a baby blanket) wrapped around her head and face that had some type of small designs on it.

Police say she was armed with a kitchen type steak knife that had a black handle.

According to the LRPD, she is possibly riding in a clean, newer model silver 4-door Ford Taurus being driven by a white male. Police say she should be considered armed and dangerous.

Notice they fail to describe the black woman but makes sure they identify it as a white male driving the car. The most racist news channels in the state of Arkansas. They always fail to describe the person by race when they are black but nearly 100% of the time they are white, a full description is given.
