Man arrested for rape, kidnapping


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV)- A man arrested for rape may be responsible for several more, according to police. Little Rock police arrested 32-year-old Latarian Arnold on Wednesday after the victim was able to give officers a description of Arnold after she says he abducted and raped her.

Sergeant Cassandra Davis from the Little Rock Police Department explained. "She was approached by the individual who took her by force," said Davis. The 19-year-old woman was walking down town on Tuesday, near 7th and Broadway.

According to police, Latarian forced the woman into a cab and forced her into an apartment complex in Midtown. Police say they have not released the man's photo because they say he might be linked to other rapes around town. "We do believe that he is connected to other incidents in the city," said Davis. "There was an incident in July of 2014 which the same suspect description was given."

Court appoints master in wage increase


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Arkansas' highest court has appointed a former state appeals judge to review evidence in the lawsuit that aims to remove a proposed minimum wage increase from the November ballot.

The state Supreme Court on Thursday appointed John B. Robbins as a special master to hold hearings and review evidence regarding the lawsuit filed by Little Rock businessman Jackson T. Stephens Jr. Stephens is challenging the validity of the signatures that were submitted for the proposal, which would gradually raise Arkansas' minimum wage from $6.25 an hour to $8.50 by 2017.

Robbins was given until noon Oct. 10 to file a report with the court.

Justices also set an Oct. 13 deadline for briefs to be filed in the case and an Oct. 16 deadline for reply briefs.
