Lexington Police said a victim had to help a robbery suspect with his escape after he got stuck inside the car he was robbing.

Police said two women parked in front of the Speedway on Nicholasville road just before 11 p.m. Thursday and the driver went inside.

That’s when police said a man with a bandana over his face got into the backseat, held a gun to the passenger’s head and demanded money.

The victim told ABC36 that she gave the man all of her cash.

She then grabbed the gun’s barrel and yelled at the suspect when he didn’t seem satisfied with the amount.

The suspect then tried to leave but was stuck inside the car because the child safety locks were activated.

The woman said the man panicked so she got out of the car and opened the door for him.

The man then took off running.

Police searched the area but were unable to locate the suspect.

The man only got away with about $12 to $20, according to police.
