— An employee of a Little Rock EZ Mart was robbed while taking out the trash early Tuesday morning.

Little Rock police received a call about 12:45 a.m. and responded to the EZ Mart at 11911 Mara Lynn Road.

The male convenience store worker told police that he was taking out the trash when he saw someone crouching in front of the store.

The employee told police that he ran toward a nearby Little Caesars restaurant but he fell down, and the man he'd seen caught up with him.

The robber then pointed a handgun at the employee and took him back to the EZ Mart, where a second man was waiting.

The robbers forced the employee to open the register and took his wallet before fleeing on foot with an unknown amount of cash and credit cards.

The first robber was described as a 25- to 30-year-old black male, weighing about 180 pounds and standing about 5-foot-9. The victim told police that the robber wore a blue bandanna, a black hooded sweatshirt, black pants and brown boots.

The second robber was described as a 25- to 30-year-old black male weighing about 200 pounds and standing about 5-foot-11. He was wearing a black bandanna and a dark hooded sweatshirt, police said.

    I wish the young men in this city find something positive to do beside rob people with guns.I guess they will rob for the next 20 years and retire. Too bad they won't have a social security check coming to them. Can't report robbery as income. Should make one think.

    Little Rock and NLR are in the midst of a serious crime wave. Take the police off traffic control and put them on the streets. Get the district attorneys to start going after stifer sentences for these worthless thieves. Retailers need to beef up with security guards and cameras.

    If this continues, you will see a large economic loss because people are scared to shop, to move about the city, and especially for recruiting employers to the area. No one wants to move or stay here if someone is being robbed at gunpoint every single day. More police, more gun control, better education, tougher justice on violent criminals - all of these and much, much more will help fight back and combat this crime.

    Amen on the gun control, Eco Maintaining your sight picture while obtaining good target alignment is an aquired skill requiring much practice to make natural. We need gun control advocates who can deliver the training grounds and consumables required to practice our gun control. When we can all control our guns to the level of one shot, one kill, we will be able to make a real dent in this crime wave.

    This crime wave is the predictable result of bad schools and limited social services. I suspect these guys were not raised in model homes and are not students at Harvard.

    As Mark Twain said:

    "Every time you stop a school, you will have to build a jail. What you gain at one end you lose at the other."

    To everybody who thinks that the public can save money by having bad schools, you are just wrong. Bad public schools =crime wave.
