McAllister's in west Little Rock robbed again

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- A series of robberies over the past few weeks in the little rock area have businesses and citizens concerned. And police are asking for the public's help.

Armed and dangerous. That's the alert Little Rock police have issued for the suspects involved in nearly 10 robberies since May 31.

"All these robberies, they've had weapons. They have shown those weapons. They have pointed them at people. They fired rounds. So,yes, we believe that they've been armed in everyone of [the robberies]," says Lt. Terry Hastings with LRPD.

Hastings says several fast food restaurants have been held up in the past few weeks: the Taco Bell at 9600 N. Rodney Parham, Arby's at 301 N. Shackleford and McDonalds on 12th Street.
