Woman, 22, beaten in dispute over $10

A Little Rock woman was beaten, robbed and pulled out of a vehicle early Wednesday after a dispute with an acquaintance over $10, she told police.

The 22-year-old said she got into a white vehicle around 5 a.m. with three other people she regularly spends time with, the report shows.

She said a person whom she knows only as "Marcus" mentioned the $10 she had borrowed from him a couple of months ago. The woman told him she didn't have the money to pay him back and that the $20 she had on her was for her grandmother, according to police.

"Marcus" began punching her in the face, the report states, then he and a woman pulled her out of the vehicle near South University Avenue and Berkshire Drive.

The pair took the $20 and her red Air Jordan shoes, the 22-year-old told officers, then they got back in the vehicle and drove off.

Police noted that the woman had facial injuries and that the white four-door vehicle was possibly a Mercury Grand Marquis.

In addition to "Marcus," a woman was named as a suspect in the report. No one with those names had been booked into the Pulaski County jail as of Wednesday morning, according to the online inmate roster.
