Two gunmen approached a woman as she sat in her SUV outside a west Little Rock Wal-Mart early Friday and then forced her to drive to a nearby ATM, where they made her withdraw all her money before stealing the vehicle, authorities said.

The 28-year-old victim said it happened about 4:20 a.m. as she was waiting in her vehicle before going to work at the store at 700 S. Bowman Road, according to a Little Rock Police Department report.

The woman said the two demanded cash but soon realized she only had a debit card.

"Oh no, we going to the bank," one of the assailants reportedly said before they made the victim drive to an Arvest Bank on Chenal Parkway. There, she withdrew all the money from her account, the report noted.

The two ordered the woman to drive back to the Wal-Mart, where they forced her out of the vehicle at gas pumps for a neighboring Sam's Club, police said.

The gunmen then drove off in the victim's Mitsubishi Outlander. The report noted the victim was unable to get a good look at them because they ordered her to turn away from them, but authorities later released description based on surveillance from the Wal-Mart.

The two robbers were said to be black men in their early 20s who stood about 5 foot 10 inches tall and had skinny builds. One, who said his name was Trey, was wearing a red beanie and a black hoodie. The other had a short afro and was wearing a blue-and-red coat and red hat. Both men were armed with handguns, and investigators believe they arrived in a newer dark gray Nissan Sentra.

Authorities searched the surrounding area but didn't make an arrest.

    Hmm, just exactly how much was "all her money"? And no description? Not even race?

    HarleyOwner, race can be inferred by what the assailant said, if the quote in the article is accurate.

    Yet, libs want to disarm law-abiding citizens in desperate need of personal protection. Two to the chest, one to the head. That's all these worthless pieces of human debris truly understand.

    I would rather it read "and the victim, removed her concealed carry from under her arm, turned around and shot each assailant with one 44 mag hollow point and they expired in the back seat within seconds"

    come on ladies, keep your doors locked and don't open for anybody you don't know surely you can start your car and run over the sob's that are there to rob you. also find out where nearest rifle range is and learn how to protect yourself. unfortunately as with evolution it is survival of the fittest.

    wow. An employee going to work is on their employer's property in the early AM and gets strong armed robbed and kidnapped by 2 thugs with guns. Maybe the suits in the back office should revisit their security and safety policy at his location

    I don’t know about Arvest Bank but at Bank of America a customer is limited on ATM withdrawal amounts. You have to sign a form if you want to raise your limit.

    It seems if you just hang out in your car in a parking lot around LR you’re asking for it. I figured WalBox had security driving around their lots.

    I was at this after picking up my daughter from school. Concealed Carry. Retired law enforcement. I cannot get her mother to carry.
