On Monday August 30th, 2010 at approximately 10:40pm Texarkana Arkansas police officers responded to the report of a robbery on the parking lot of a local business located in the 200 block of Realtor Rd. The victim of the robbery related that he was exiting his vehicle on the parking lot when he was approached by two young b/m suspects, one of which produced a handgun and demanded money. Once the suspects had obtained the victim’s valuables they fled the scene on foot in a southeast direction.
A few hours later at approximately 3:40am on August 31st officers again responded to a robbery call on the parking lot of a business in the 4100 block of North State Line Ave. The victim in this robbery stated that two young b/m’s approached him as he was sitting in his car on the parking lot and demanded money. When the victim didn’t comply, both suspects began to beat him as he sat in his vehicle. The suspects were last observed leaving the area in a small gold or silver car believed to be a Nissan Altima. Images of the possible suspects and vehicle were captured via video surveillance at the business and still photos of the possible suspects are attached to this release.
