There were apparently several witnesses who say they saw two people, a man and a woman, walk up to a female employee at the Lexington Fayette County Health Department and attempted to rob her.
This happened in the back employee parking lot around 7:45 a.m. Tuesday. Lexington police are not clear at this point what if anything was taken from the woman. ABC 36 spoke to spokesman, Kevin Hall, who says they have brought in councilors to talk to people who are very shaken up after this violent incident.
Lexington police say they have two suspects in custody. Police believe this is an isolated incident.
The Health Department had part of their clinic shut down for some time Tuesday morning, however everything else has been running as normal. The victim was taken to the hospital, police say her stab wounds do not appear to be life threatening.
