While waiting for her vehicle to warm up, a Balboa Street resident was greeted by a man wielding a shotgun and wearing a camouflage hoodie and black ski mask stating that he was, “Fixing to rob somebody.” Officer Chris Miller responded to the call regarding an aggravated robbery and theft of a vehicle. In his report, Miller noted that the victim met him as he arrived at the scene. In his narrative, the woman told the officer that she had left her car in the street running to keep it warm while she was inside the Balboa Street address. A knock came at the door and a man that she identified stood in the doorway and asked if Tyrus was there. The woman reported that was when the man in the mask and hoodie came from around the corner of the house and stuck the shotgun in her face. She stated in Miller's report that was when she noticed that her vehicle was backing down the street. No arrests have been made and Helena-West Helena Police continue to investigate the incident that occurred on Jan. 26. A vehicle was reported stolen from a Panama Road address on Jan. 4. The victim told Officer Wesley Smith that she had gone outside to start the car to warm up between 6 and 6:30 a.m. The woman went back inside the house to continue getting ready for work. According to Smith's report, when the woman went back outside a few minutes later, the car, a 2003 Chevrolet Impala, was gone. She told police that she neither saw nor heard anyone taking the vehicle. Smith reported that the vehicle was being leased from Car-Mart in Jonesboro. The woman admitted that she was behind on the payments. The report also stated that the woman was unsure of the color of the car (grey, green, or tan). She noted in the report that she had liability insurance but the car did not have tags. Smith reported at this time there are no witnesses or suspects.
