Woman robbed in Little Rock after arranging purchase on Letgo app
LITTLE ROCK (KATV) —
A woman was robbed at gunpoint Wednesday in Little Rock after arranging a purchase through the cellphone app Letgo, police reported.
Jessica Holmes, 35, told police she went to Barrington Hills Apartments at 1221 Reservoir Road about 7:30 p.m. to meet a man who'd agreed to sell her an iPhone 7, according to a police report. A man approached her vehicle, pointed a gun at her and demanded all her money. The man took an unknown amount of cash and fled on foot.
No injuries were reported.
Holmes said the man she spoke to on Letgo used two different names and gave investigators a phone number he'd used to contact her, according to a police report. Police said they connected that phone number to a Little Rock man who matched Holmes' description of the robber.
No arrests had been made early Thursday afternoon.
