Man robbed store twice, police say
Authorities said a robber has held up the same Little Rock convenience store twice in two weeks.
According to a report from the Little Rock Police Department, the armed assailant walked into the business located at 13622 Sardis Road in the southern part of the city around 4:50 p.m. Friday.
He held a large black knife above his head and took $500 from the register, authorities said. He then grabbed a carton of Newport cigarettes and Swisher Sweet cigars before leaving the store and heading for the woods, according to the report.
The robber was described as a black man in his early 20s who weighs about 140 pounds and has short and curly black hair. A cashier told police it was the same man who had robbed the store Nov. 3.
No suspects have been named, and no arrests had been made at the time of the police report.
