NLR man arrested in Little Rock robbery

A 48-year-old North Little Rock man was arrested on Feb. 10 on charges of aggravated robbery and theft of property (D Felony) after the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office was called to the scene of a robbery at the Shell Station, 111 W. Dixon Road., Little Rock.

Officers arrested Derrick L. Dunbar, 1305 Mara Lane St.

According to a report filed by Deputy Jeffrey King, officers were dispatched at about 8:30 a.m. to the Shell gas station.

“Upon my arrival, I secured the crime scene and made contact with Kathy Hamaker, store manager,” reported King. “Ms. Hamaker stated at approximately 8:25 a.m. a black male entered the store, displayed a black handgun and robbed her.”

Hamaker stated that the man had the hood of the hoodie on his head and a black bandana covering his nose and mouth. She stated that the robber ordered, “Give me all your money and I mean all of it,” according to King’s report.

“She said she gave him an undisclosed amount of money from the cash drawer,” states the report.

Hamaker said she then hit the panic alarm as the subject was running from the scene.

“She went out behind him and observed him running west in front of Subway toward an open lot,” stated the report. “She stated he jumped the fence and got into the driver’s side of a burgundy truck that was parked by the road in the open lot, and drove off heading west on Dixon Road.”

Hamaker said she was then able to get through to 911 and told dispatchers what had happened. She also gave them a description of the suspect and the vehicle.

Lt. Joe Garza of the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office located Dunbar’s vehicle heading north on Arch Street. He was able to initiate a traffic stop at Interstate 30 and 65th Street.

Garza then transported Dunbar to the county’s investigations division.
