A man told Little Rock police that he was knocked unconscious by robbers while trying to aid someone claiming to need vehicle help.
Around 2:40 p.m. Thursday, police received a robbery report at the 12th Street substation from a 38-year-old Maumelle resident.
He told authorities that he was walking in the area of Kanis Road and Barrow Street around 11:30 a.m. to get a drink from a convenience store when someone approached him asking if he could jump-start a vehicle.
As the two walked to where the stranger said the vehicle was, two more people appeared and “jumped” the victim from behind and knocked him unconscious, according to a Little Rock Police Department report.
When he regained consciousness, the 38-year-old found that the robbers had stolen $123 in cash as well as a debit card and two credit cards from his wallet, according to the report.
The victim had extensive bruising on his face, police noted.
Additional information regarding the robbers, including physical descriptions for each, was not listed.
No suspects were named, and no arrests had been made at the time of the report.
