Re: “UPDATE: Six robbed Saturday at 13th and Main; counts as one robbery

As the President of the SOMA board of directors and State Representative of District 36, it is my job and responsibility to address the safety of our community. Eight armed robberies took place Saturday night, July 18, 2015, only a few blocks from each other in a span of 30 minutes. These acts of violence are fully unacceptable, and I am addressing them with urgency. I have pulled the police reports of all the incidents and am reaching out to the victims as well as the businesses owners who have been affected. I am also in the process of meeting with the Argenta and River Market districts where they patrol businesses until closing hours, for advice and best practices concerning saftey. I will meet with Little Rock Police Chief Kenton Buckner to decide how we might—together—continue to prevent, prepare and respond to violence in this area and across our district. You will be updated as my efforts progress.

The actions of the criminal who perpetrated these crimes are isolated, and not indicative of the SOMA district or its community members, but are not uncommon in other areas , specifically within District 36 and generally across the City of Little Rock. We will all need to play a part, not only for our friends and neighbors, but also for our city at large and ultimately the reputation of the State. Neighborhood organizations have methods of reporting and preventing crime, and I will work with those associations to support and grow these efforts. I will need your help. Contact me at 501-425-9824 or charles.blake@arkansashouse.org to express your concerns and suggestions. I look forward to hearing from you.
Sincerely,
Rep. Charles Blake
District 36
