Local News

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – One of the three men charged in last week’s attempted robbery-turned murder at a local diner has been charged in a robbery committed the day before the killing.

The Little Rock Police Department (LRPD) says Marquis Parker, 21, now faces the additional charges of aggravated robbery and theft of property.

Police say he admitted to the June 22 robbery at the Boost Mobile store in the 5400 block of Baseline Road. Detectives had developed him as a suspect in the case on June 29 and interviewed him at police headquarters before returning Parker to the Pulaski County Regional Detention Facility.

In the Boost Mobile robbery, workers told police that two black males armed with handguns came into the business with their faces covered and demanded money. Both were described as 20-30 years old and about 6’0″ tall with a medium build. One was armed with a black semiautomatic handgun and the other had a small revolver, the incident report said.

Parker is charged in the June 23 Frontier Diner homicide, along with Adrian Avery and Corey Eskridge, both 21.
