New details released in latest Sonic robbery

JONESBORO, Ark. (KAIT) - For the second night in a row, Jonesboro police are investigating a late-night robbery at a fast-food restaurant.

Just before 10 Wednesday night, officers responded to an armed robbery at the Sonic on South Gee Street.

According to the initial incident report, an 18-year-old car hap told police when she brought the suspect’s order out to him, he pulled out a silver pistol and said, “Give me everything you got before I start shooting.”

The victim gave the man her apron containing several $20 bills. The suspect then ran away.

She described the suspect as a Black male in his mid-20s standing approximately 6′ tall with tattoos on his face and hands. She said he was wearing a dark, baggie hoodie at the time of the hold-up.

The Jonesboro Criminal Investigation Division responded Wednesday night and is working to get the video to help with a better description of the suspect.

This latest robbery came just 24 hours after an armed robbery Tuesday night at the Sonic at 1215 East Johnson Ave.

While investigating the holdup, police received a call about an unrelated incident a block away at Food Smart, 1000 S. Gee.

A store employee said a man came into the store just after 10 p.m. and dropped a backpack by a register then left out the back door.

The incident report stated the bag contained a wallet belonging to a named victim and a speaker. The report did not provide a description of the man who left the backpack.
