Authorities in Little Rock are searching for a man who robbed a Little Rock lingerie store early Monday with a gun now believed to have been a fake.

The Little Rock Police Department said the robber brandished the apparent firearm while holding up Cupid's Lingerie at 3920 W. 65th St. shortly before 6:15 a.m.

Police reviewed the video surveillance from the store and said the man's "large blue steel revolver" is "now believed to have been a toy gun."

The agency said the man did manage to take the clerk's real handgun during the robbery. A spokesman for the police department said he didn't immediately have information on what else the robber took.

The assailant is described as a 25- to 30-year-old Hispanic or white man who stood 5 feet 10 inches tall with a medium build. He was wearing a gray shirt with blue sleeves, a ball cap, blue jeans and black tennis shoes with white soles and orange laces.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at (501) 404-3032.

    Who knew there was such demand for pajamas at 6AM that the store would be open at that hour!

    So the store had a weapon, and it was stolen? Had the clerk been weapon trained? Did the clerk have a CCL?

    Way too many weird things in this one story for it to be taken at face value!

    He didn't need a CCL, but maybe some training in how to use it.

    Did he slip in through the back door?

    @Libertarian: I think this is one that sells more than JUST lingerie. ;) But then, why would a libertarian like you object?

    I agree with the author I too have struggled a great deal it's not been easy. For instance one thing I just recently gotten into trading oil through Traders Superstore and I'm doing well but it's not as easy as I thought, lol. But we have to work at it and not give up if it's our dream right? That's what I think, just go for your dream!
