A woman told Little Rock police that she followed her robber after money was stolen from her at a Wal-Mart store earlier this week.

The Little Rock Police Department responded around 11:20 a.m. Wednesday to a report of a robbery of an individual at the Wal-Mart at 8801 Baseline Road, according to a report.

After being robbed, the victim, a 34-year-old woman, followed the robber to the area of 22nd Street and Broadway, where the assailant became “involved in an accident,” authorities said.

The robber then fled the area on foot, according to police.

As officers arrived on scene at 22nd Street and Broadway, a woman also arrived, telling authorities that her son had been involved in the crash.

Someone had driven her son, identified as 18-year-old Freddrick Childs of Little Rock, home, she added. The mother then brought Childs back to the scene.

Police found a .40-caliber weapon in the front pocket of his pants. Childs’ clothes and shoes “were damp and a little muddy, as if he had been on the ground or running through wet grass, the report noted.

Childs was taken to the 12th Street substation, where he was identified by the victim as the person who robbed her, and later transported to the Pulaski County jail on charges of aggravated robbery and theft of property.

Records show he also faces “several traffic charges.” Details of those counts were not clear.

Additional information regarding the robbery was not immediately available.

Childs remained jailed as of Thursday morning without bond, according to an online inmate roster.

If he would have only beaten someone with a "switch" and been a a "religious thug" we could have gotten a few more commentators on here. Lots of "ghosts" around these parts.

Wonder if he was part of the "activity" at the club shooting this past week... fits the profile. Then again, with Little Rock's overflowing supply of thugs, who knows.

That being said, I am extremely happy that this mother did what was right - though I wonder if she had a clue about his "extra-curricular activities"?

It's apparent that most of you smart mouthed commenters in a safe place could not walk a mile in our shoes. Would you go anywhere near 22nd and Broadway and actually talk that smack. Better off staying somewhere safe. God knows I would never want to be, look like, talk, or act anything like you cowards. I am so glad that I'm black and real and unafraid. I don't need all of the guns that Frederick whatever his name is has. Two will do! The boys mother turned him in. Do you have any empathy for and how she feels? Of course not. The devil has empathy for no one. The devil is good at hiding and acting like he's good and has done nothing wrong so that he can condemn others. I have news for you...YOU ARE ALREADY CONDEMNED BECAUSE YOUR HEARTS ARE TRUELY BLACK!!! You can't help it. It's genetics. Your DNA. Esau, you are true to form.
All of us fall short of the fathers glory. Some of us are too busy being hypocrites to ever become better than what they are. This young black man may save one of your worthless lives one day. As for me... I wouldn't spit on you if your coward ass was on fire.

Let's pray that none of your offspring goes to school with his daddies shotgun and kills his classmates and teacher faculty because he was weird as hell and his peers made fun of him. Hold on...I know...let's just blame it on bad parenting of little P's.O.S.
