NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Police are looking for three men who reportedly kidnapped and carjacked a man from an area park, forced him to withdraw money from an ATM, dropped him off in a secluded area, and shot at him several times.
According to Sgt. Brian Dedrick, North Little Rock police responded to a call about 7 p.m. Monday regarding a kidnapping and aggravated robbery that reportedly started at Burns Park.
The 18-year-old told police he was sitting in his truck outside the tennis courts at Burns Park, waiting for friends to arrive, when a man knocked on the window of his car. Dedrick said the victim reported the man had a revolver pointed at him, then three people got into his truck and put the victim in the backseat at gunpoint.
The victim said the men took his wallet and cell phone, then demanded the PIN for his debit card and drove to three ATMs to withdraw money. Dedrick said the men successfully withdrew $200 from the victim's account. The victim told police the men became worried when they saw a police officer conducting a stop nearby, so they drove to the Frazier Pike area of Little Rock and told the man to run. While he was running away, he said they shot at him six times; none of the bullets hit him.
The victim was able to flag down a driver in the area who helped him call police and report the incident; he said he was kidnapped for at least two and a half hours before being released from the truck.
Police obtained surveillance video from one of the ATMs, which they hope will help lead to arrests in the case. Police are also looking for the truck involved, which is a blue 2007 Isuzu with Arkansas license plate 745 RJF.
Anyone who comes in contact with the truck or who has information on this case is asked to call the detective at 501-680-8439.
