Friday afternoon, Little Rock Police responded to a possible robbery and found a 57-year-old woman who wasn’t about to be a victim.
According to The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, the woman said she was unlocking her car in a nearby shopping center parking lot at 4:15 p.m. when a man approached. The aspiring robber suddenly grabbed the woman’s purse off her shoulder. At the same time, the woman grabbed the gun she kept inside her bag, instantly ending the potential mugging.
She told police when the assailant saw the weapon, he took off running through the parking lot and disappeared behind a store. No items were stolen, and police are still searching for the suspect.
