Couple robbed in NLR while responding to Craigslist ad

Posted By on Fri, Feb 22, 2013 at 2:20 PM

A couple told N. Little Rock Police they were robbed at gunpoint last night after driving from Oklahoma hoping to buy a car they saw advertised on Craigslist.

The couple said they'd been directed to go to an address on Graham Ave., where they were to meet the seller of a used Mercedes, who told them he was running late. While they were waiting for the seller to arrive, they were approached by two men in hooded sweatshirts, at least one of whom brandished a handgun. The men demanded their valuables, then ran away.

This isn't the first Craigslist robbery in recent memory. Last October, a Little Rock man was charged with theft of property after police say he did multiple snatch-and-run robberies from Craigslist sellers who met up with him while trying to sell small electronics.

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
