Little Rock police said a robber pepper-sprayed a central Arkansas man before stealing his gun and some ammunition Tuesday night in a Walgreens parking lot.

The 50-year-old victim told officers he had met the individual on a website called Gun Trader, and the person, whom he knew as "Jarod," had shown interest in purchasing his handgun.

When the two met at 9 p.m. at the pharmacy at 3901 W. Markham St. in Little Rock, the gun owner let the would-be buyer into his car and handed him the firearm to examine, according to a report from the city's Police Department.

The report states the assailant then pepper-sprayed the Mayflower man in the face and took off with the $400 handgun and 50 rounds of ammunition, worth $30.

Police wrote that the victim followed the robber, who fled south on Cedar Street, but was unable to find him.

The suspect was described as a white male who stands 6 feet tall and weighs 170 pounds.

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

First clue should have been the 9 p.m. meet-up.

"Good guy with a gun" can't even stop a bad guy with pepper spray. What a joke! He thought guns would keep him safe....lucky he wasn't killed

The Police continually encourage people to do these transactions on the parking lot of one of their sub stations where there are cameras and yet, people don't.
