A Little Rock man jailed in Pulaski County on unrelated charges faces felony counts of aggravated robbery for allegedly holding a Conway woman and her six-year-old son at gunpoint at their home last week.
Pulaski County Sheriff's Department officials contacted Conway Police Department after Gabriel Jaquez, 22, allegedly shot a man and shot at officers before being seriously injured in a car accident outside of Faulkner County.
The Conway woman's vehicle, which she told police was taken by the armed robber, was discovered by officials near the scene of the shooting.
According to a Conway Police Department incident report, police responded on Monday of last week to the 1900 block of Creekwood Drive in reference to an aggravated robbery.
The victim told police a man entered the garage of her home with a shotgun and took her vehicle as she and her son were leaving for school.
The victim told police she exited her house through the kitchen door and into the garage when she saw the man walk around the back of her vehicle holding a gun. She told her son to go inside the house and hide, according to the report.
The report stated the man cocked and pointed the gun at her and demanded her keys. She gave him the keys, and he took the excess keys off of the keyring and threw them down before saying, "I'm sorry, this is my last resort," and leaving in the victim's car.
According to La Tresha Woodruff, public information officer for the Conway Police Department, Jaquez recently admitted to the crime in Conway in a police interview, where he was described as remorseful for scaring the child.
The report from Pulaski County officials indicated it was unclear if Jaquez would survive his injuries, but Woodruff said he has recovered and is in jail.
In Conway he faces two felony counts of aggravated robbery, felony theft of property by force with a firearm, and felony possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
