Two more robberies in Heights/Hillcrest; up to seven in a month UPDATE

Posted By on Mon, Nov 14, 2016 at 12:37 PM

The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reports a couple more robberies in the Heights and Hillcrest neighborhoods Saturday by a man with a gun, running the total robberies in the area to seven in a month.

One robbery about 4:50 p.m. Saturday occurred outside a home in the 1100 block of Kavanaugh, another about 9:30 p.m. in the 1800 block of Pierce when a man returned to his car from a restaurant.

Police said patrols likely would be stepped up because of the robbery "hot spot" that appears to have developed.

Both commercial neighborhoods have relatively high foot traffic in evening hours thanks to restaurants, grocery stores and other businesses.

UPDATE: A single robber with a pistol hitting in a grocery parking lot after asking first for a lighter sounds a bit similar to the others, but this occurred in Stagecoach Road in Southwet Little Rock. When he saw a child in the backseat of the car, he took off.

    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.
