Conway police are looking for suspects involved in two separate incidents of aggravated residential burglary.
The first incident was reported just before 10 p.m. Friday night at the 2700 block of Dave Ward Drive.
A resident of an apartment complex reportedly opened the door to find two masked men with handguns who forced their way into the apartment and stole $420 in cash, a laptop and two gaming consoles and accessories.
The 20-year-old Conway man told police he fled the residence and hid in the bed of a pickup truck for several hours before returning to the apartment. He described the men as dark-skinned, and each about 5’9”. One suspect was reportedly wearing a white hoodie and gray sweatpants and was carrying two pistols. The man said the other suspect was wearing a black hoodie and blue jeans and was also carrying a pistol.
Another incident involving a shotgun-brandishing burglar occurred early Monday morning on Creekwood Drive, where a 30-year-old mother of one reported that she and her son were preparing to leave for school when a black male entered her garage and took her vehicle.
Police said on Tuesday the stolen and unoccupied Pontiac Aztec was recovered from a dead-end alley at 8 Antler Way Court in Sherwood.
Anyone with information on these crimes is asked to contact the Conway Police Department at 501-450-6120.
