More women forced to strip in Saline County during robberies

Detectives say two arcades are the latest businesses to be hit by robbers who are forcing women to take off their clothes. Authorities say these are not related to similar robberies in Bryant.
Saline County investigators say robbers kicked in the door at the Lucky 7 arcade off Highway 167. Detectives say the men had guns in hand, tied several people up inside, and made the women strip before leaving with cash on August 2nd.

"It's pretty bad for women to go through that," says Edward Kinchen, who works next door.

Two people were also reportedly injured during the robbery.

Just two weeks before this robbery, detectives say the same thing happened at another arcade, The Getaway, also off Highway 167. The police report shows robbers tied up two women and made them take off their clothes. The crooks stole purses, cell phones and a car, which was later found.

Saline County detectives say two people are in custody for these robberies, including 24-year-old Jonquil King, who is charged with several counts of aggravated robbery and attempted murder after investigators say he fired a gun inside the Lucky 7.

Right now, Bryant police say these robberies are not related to the Euphoria Salon or Dollar General robberies. During those attacks, police say a man also demanded money and forced women to strip. Police are still looking for that suspect. A $1,000 reward is being offered for information leading to an arrest in those cases.

Saline County detectives say the women were not sexually assaulted at either of the arcades.
