A 28-year-old employee of a Dollar Tree in Little Rock was robbed at gunpoint on Thursday night as he tried to deposit the store's cash at a bank across the street from UAMS Medical Center, police said.

It happened shortly after 10:15 p.m. at the Regions Bank at 4224 W. Markham St.

The worker told investigators he was trying to drop off the store's night cash deposit when a man got out of a blue GMC Yukon parked in a nearby driveway, ran up to him and pointed a handgun, according to a Little Rock Police Department report.

The employee handed over the money bag to the robber, who returned to the Yukon. It then drove off.

Police searched the area but didn't make an arrest.

    Anywhere within a 10 block radius of the UAMS campus is not a safe place to be after dark. Lots of folks hanging out around there - especially the area around the ER and parking deck.

    A drop safe in the store & daytime only bank deposits would be a lot smarter.

    Conspicuous that it would be a Dollar Tree employee being robbed. Seems like those “Dollar” stores and it’s employees are caught up in an inordinate number of crimes.

    That's the Regions with the weird walk-up ATM and sparse lighting
    The Regions in the Heights is lit up like Razorback Stadium. But day deposits make more sense.
