Man hiding in store ties up, robs employees

Lexington police are searching for a man suspected of tying up several employees during a grocery store robbery Friday on North Broadway.


The man walked into Save-A-Lot at 1235 North Broadway Friday, posing as a customer, and hid until the store closed, Lexington police said. After the store closed, the man, police say had been in hiding for at least 30 minutes, went into the office with a knife and then tied up several employees. He escaped with an undisclosed amount of cash.

The man has been described as Hispanic and he was wearing a plaid shirt, blue jeans with a light-colored back pocket, dark shoes and gloves. He was wearing a hat when he entered the store, but he later removed the hat and put on a mask that appears to have been made out of a bag.

Anyone with information about this robbery should contact Lexington police at (859) 258-3700 or Bluegrass Crime Stoppers at (859) 253-2020.
