Three teenagers are behind bars. They’ve been charged as adults for two different aggravated robberies in Little Rock that happened within days of each other.
The first crime took place at a park a long the 2300 block of Arkansas Valley Drive.
Police say a grandfather was in the park with his three-year-old granddaughter.
Three men walked up to the pair and surrounded them. One of the suspects pointed a handgun at the grandfather and told demanded he give him everything he had.
The grandfather did as he was told – and the three men fled on foot.
Two days later, a man was in the parking lot of Whole Foods on North Rodney Parham Road when three men walked up to him and asked if they could borrow a dollar.
When the victim opened his car to grab some change, one of the suspects got in the passenger side of the car and pulled out a gun.
The suspect told the man to give him all the money. The victim ran toward the store and called police.
Officers were able to track the men down – and all three are now facing serious charges.
