"Three robbers tried to hold up a Little Rock apparel store Thursday night but were thwarted by an employee, Little Rock police said. Officers responding to a robbery call at Hip Hop Sportswear on 6624 Colonel Glenn Road said employee Iyad Otham told them, as described in the police report, that 'three homosexual black men' entered the business. Two of the suspects approached the counter and displayed firearms and pepper spray. He told officers that they sprayed him and he was able to knock a gun from one of the suspect's hands, but another suspect fired shots at him. Otham then picked up the gun that had fallen, according to an incident report, and fired back, hitting one of the suspects. The suspects fled." (06/24/11)
