An Arkansas woman was left on a dirt road after two armed robbers forced her to withdraw hundreds of dollars from an ATM in Little Rock and then stole her car, officials said.

The 27-year-old woman from Perryville pulled into the parking lot of her work at a Verizon call center off of Riverfront Drive around 11:10 a.m. Friday, officer Robbie Hinman wrote in a report.

When she got out of her vehicle, a man wielding an assault rifle came up behind her and forced her back inside the red 2013 Kia Forte, the report said. He got in the Forte's backseat and another person with a small silver pistol got in the passenger seat, the victim police.

The robbers forced her to drive to an Arvest Bank ATM at 500 Broadway and make two withdrawals from both of her debit cards, totaling $780, the report said. Then they directed her to a dirt road off of Dixon Road south of Little Rock, where they forced her out of the car before fleeing in it, the victim told police.

The woman's cellphone was in the car when it was stolen, she said.

Police reportedly contacted the Verizon call center about getting security footage from the parking lot.

No suspects were named on the report.

    Crime is definitely out of control in Little Rock with no end in sight.

    I agree. There is no place that's safe.
    If you arm yourself, be prepared to use the weapon. I
    Always be aware of persons around you & the area where you are parking.

    NutButter - you can park close to the Wal-Mart building in the evening feeling safe, only to find when you get ready to leave they have locked those doors and you have to go the other end of the building and walk across the entire parking lot where people are robbed and killed on a regular basis. Think I am going to choose the weapon.

    Hogfan they also do that at Kroger about 8 p.m. It's very unsettling when you realize you're stuck.

    Glad the bad guys didn't kill the victim. It's time to institute the death penalty for armed robbery.

    The LRPD Chief says crime is going down. It is. This robbery is "going down" right here and that robbery is "going down" right there, that murder went "down" right there, man, it is "going down" all over. See folks, it is all in how you say it. Sometimes "going down" does not necessarily mean it is being reduced.
