'Ironman' robs Little Rock restaurant


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) – Little Rock police say a man in an 'Ironman' mask robbed a local restaurant.

Officers were called to Five Guys Burger & Fries at 13000 Chenal Parkway Sunday just after 10 p.m.

The police report states the manager on duty told officers a man wearing an 'Ironman' mask with a silver handgun entered the store through the back by holding his gun to an employee's head and walking in. The suspect then demanded money. The manager said while in the office, the suspect reportedly told him to open the bottom of the safe, which is where the money drops are stored.

The manager suggested to police that only employees of the business commonly know of that part of the safe.

Officers said they searched the area with no results.

THV11 in Your Town feature: Batesville

BATESVILLE, Ark. (KTHV) – I’m not going to lie. I think I chose Batesville for this trip just because I wanted to visit my old home again and see how much it has changed since I graduated from Lyon.

I could immediately see several changes as I drove in from Highway 167. Southside seems to have blossomed quickly into a busy area; Colton’s has moved to the old Bonanza site, my beloved Quizno’s/”secret” study place has shut down, and a Walgreen’s now sits where the old gas station and Baskin Robbins once stood. Things were even changing on campus and in the downtown area.

LYON COLLEGE

The biggest change at Lyon so far is the new Edwards Commons building. The original building was destroyed by fire in 2010, but a new 44,000 square-foot building has risen in its place, housing a campus store, mailboxes, a dining area and bistro, and the student life center.
