Man Arrested Following Armed Robbery Of Visitors

Hot Springs National Park

National Park News

Two park visitors were walking on Fountain Street just down from the park’s Arlington Lawn and Grand Promenade area around 10 p.m. on the evening of Saturday, May 22nd, when they were attacked and robbed. Three men accosted the pair from behind, stealing the women's purse and the man’s wallet while they brandished knives, one reportedly holding a knife to the woman’s throat. After forcibly obtaining these items, the trio fled, 'thanking' the victims as they departed. Prompt response by Hot Springs Police Department officers and NPS rangers resulted in the apprehension of one of the three men, a 21-year-old illegal alien. He remains in custody on an immigration hold. Special agent Robert Still, with assistance from Hot Springs rangers, is coordinating the investigation and efforts to locate the two remaining suspects.
