An 18-year-old says she was robbed while giving someone a ride Sunday, according to a report from Little Rock police.

The Van Buren teen told officers she was taking “some guy,” whom she described as a 5-foot-tall male weighing about 150 pounds with a dark complexion and long, braided black hair, to an address near the intersection of Fair Park Boulevard and West 12th Street around 5:30 a.m.

According to the report, she reached into her wallet to give him $10 and began counting her money, at which point he snatched $300 and ran to a nearby 1999 Dodge.

The teen told officers the Dodge then backed into her 2008 Nissan Altima “on purpose to get away.” Police said neither she nor a man who was a passenger in the car were injured.

A witness told officers that the 18-year-old was trying to buy marijuana when she was robbed.
