Police say a man threatened to shoot an employee at a Little Rock Kroger on Tuesday afternoon.

Officers arrived at the Kroger at 14000 Cantrell Road around noon after getting a call about an attempted robbery, according to a police report.

An employee told police he saw a man put several items into a shopping cart in the produce section and walk through the store without attempting to pay. The employee followed the man, at which point he turned around and told the worker he would "pop a cap in [his] a**," the report said.

The man then abandoned the cart, walked out of the store and drove away in a black Chevrolet, police said.

No suspects were named on the report.

    Another robbery w/o a discription of the robber-could it be because he was black/Hispanic?

    Titleist10---From the quotation-- "pop a cap in [his] a**," --I will surmise that the thug is not from Norway or Sweden. Racking my brain to figure out what person might use such language since the ADG cannot provide a description.

    Being hungry, loosing food stamps are just possibilities. Another is he was a thieving thug.
    None are reasons to threaten to shoot an innocent productive citizen in the buttocks.

    "Poppin caps" over vegetables, etc??! Sounds like someone needs some prison time. Hopefully next time he threatens such a thing somebody replies and pops that cop in his a$$!

    If this thieving thug is hungry he should blame Obama since Obama is the one who cut food stamps right before he left office.

    Also, how about this thieving thug getting a J O B !!! Just a thought.
