A gunman kidnapped a Little Rock woman early Friday morning, police said, and robbed a Popeyes near the University of Arkansas at Little Rock campus.

A 27-year-old Popeyes employee told police she had arrived home from work when a person with his face covered forced her at gunpoint back into her car. She said he got into the passenger seat and made her drive to the fast-food restaurant at 3208 S. University Ave.

The 27-year-old and the gunman entered the restaurant, she said, and the gunman, along with another robber, forced her to give them the money from the store, then left her in the freezer.

Police received a call around 2:30 a.m. of a robbery at the restaurant, and officers said they found several cash drawers on the ground next to scattered change when they arrived.

The worker told them she could not remember anything about the robbers except that they were entirely covered and were in either a red or orange Chevrolet Camaro, police said. Aside from both being male, no physical description of the robbers was available.

    I would investigate the employee, sounds like she may be in on the heist.

    Sounds like thug friends talked her into it. No description? Didn’t notice height, skin color but knew they were both male? How did she get out of the freezer? Waited for her at her at home? What kind of gun(s) pistol, shotgun or assault rifle? Did they take her purse, backpack or wallet? Very fishy!

    What's fishy to me is they stole cash instead of chicken sandwiches. ;)

    Did the unknown guys work there, too? Just friends? A cousin, maybe? Coulda been they just followed her home from work..... or not.

    Dear Abby, I read this article where this girl claims..... I think it is total BS. Am I an a$$hole? Non believer in Little Rock

    Dear Non Believer, I would say that you are just a conspiracy theorist except you are from Little Rock so I agree the story is complete BS! Abby

    Who has the best crispy chicken sandwich & has the most money in the safe to proof it?

    The employee is probably a black lady and was afraid to tell the cops the perps were white. The red Camaro gives that away. Black robbers use dodge chargers or challengers.
