Police Investigate Back-To-Back Crimes

Lexington Police are kept busy late Monday night investigating a robbery and an attempted robbery within a short time frame.

The first happened on Village Drive.

Police said a man was getting out of his car around 10:30 p.m. when he was approached by a man with a silver handgun.

The suspect got away with the victim’s wallet and cell phone.

Then shortly afterwards, officers rushed to Jeffrey Court.

Police said a man was in the parking lot of his apartment complex when he was approached by two men, one with a black handgun.

Police said the two tried to rob the man, but he fought back.

Police said the victim was hit with the gun during a scuffle. He sustained minor injuries but was OK.

The victim then tried to run away into his apartment. That’s when police said one of the suspects fired a shot.

Those suspects ran off empty handed.

In spite of the similar timing and location of the two incidents, police said they don’t have any evidence linking the crimes.
