A Little Rock resident says he was robbed by a man wielding a knife in a Wal-Mart parking lot Tuesday morning, according to the Little Rock Police Department.

Clifford Jones, 81, told police he had finished shopping at the store at 2700 S. Shackleford Road around 10:40 a.m. and entered his vehicle when a man approached his driver's-side door, according to a police report. The robber opened the door and demanded money from Jones, threatening him with a knife, Jones told police.

Jones gave the man all the cash he had on him, about $175, and the man got into the back of a black four-door Chevrolet and left, according to the report.

Jones told police that the car had a Razorback license plate, though he could not see the number, according to the report. He described the man as black, between 35 and 45 years old and around 5 feet 8 inches tall, police said.

Police searched the area and did not find the vehicle or the man, according to the report.

    Another thug destroying his own neighborhood. Too bad someone didn't have a gun handy to put this POS out of his misery. Where's the NAACP and BLM??

    Sounds like a hate crime against the elderly.
    How ridiculous that one cannot safely shop at 10:30 on a Tuesday morning.

    Thugs getting braver because they know Obama's Dept. of selectiveJustice and Tarmac Lynch will protect them from the police.

    2700 S. Shackleford Road. Shackleford Crossing WalMart. This place is a ghetto. There's a couple of decent places to eat, and this is where Taco's For Life wants to build. Good food, I've been waiting for them to come to LR, but for the above reason I'll probably rarely, if ever, go.

    Dang, that's not ghetto, that's a decent place. Has JC Penny, a hobby store, Joanne's, and very decent chain restaurants. My wife and child and I go all the time to this shopping center.

    We'll have to cast a wary eye next time we're out that way.

    I think we can read the writing on the wall:
    Thugs are brazen in all areas in broad daylight.
    I wouldn't go there at night. Lots of places we used to consider safe but we won't go there now.

    Where is the outrage?!

    Mr Jones, @ 81, was probably moving a little slower and was possibly preoccupied, thus an easy target for the thug types that are over running LR/NLR these days. I'm glad the old codger wasn't hurt.
