Police say robbers, including one armed with a handgun, took $20 from a man walking near a Little Rock library early Wednesday.

It happened around 4:40 a.m. in the area of Sidney S. McMath Library, 2100 John Barrow Road, according to a Little Rock Police Department report.

The 34-year-old victim told an officer that two people approached him and said, “You know what time it is.”

One of the robbers — a black male who stands about 5 feet 5 inches tall and weighs around 160 pounds — had a black-and-gray handgun, police said.

The second robber was described as a black male who stands about 6 feet 2 inches tall and weighs 200 pounds. He reportedly had a red bandana over his face.

Authorities said the pair took $20 and fled south on John Barrow Road in a 1980s model gold Chevrolet Caprice.

No suspects were named, and no arrests had been made at the time of the report.

"You know what time it is?"....yep. Time to switch from .380 ACP to 10mm and shoot back!

abb. When someone already has a gun pointed at you, you won't have time to fire back. And it is certainly not worth shooting someone over $20.

Why isn't the black community involved in working to reduce black crime? All they do is complain about the police
