A Cammack Village news group posts kudos for Cammack police officer Sammy Green, who reportedly busted a thief in Little Rock while working a security job near UAMS in Little Rock.
On Tuesday (Aug 30) evening Officer Green was working an extra/off duty job in the 4200 block of Markham, when he was approached by a frantic UAMS Med center student.
This student advised he was approached by a white male who requested to use his cell phone and then struck in the head with a cast the suspect had on his arm. The suspect took the victim's wallet and fled on foot east on Markham.
Officer Green found the suspect in an alley north of Markham, who fled on foot. Officer Green chased the suspect to the Shell Gas Station at Markham and North Elm, where the suspect attempted to get into an awaiting vehicle. Officer Green took both suspects into custody without further incident.
UAMS and LRPD officer responded and took over the investigation. Both suspects were arrested.
