Lexington police were investigating an attempted robbery that occurred at a pharmacy early Friday morning.
According to police, the incident occurred about 5:30 a.m. at a Rite Aid on Malabu Drive.
Employees were unloading items from a delivery truck at the rear of the building when a man apparently slipped through the back door and tried to take a container of items that had been delivered. The man, who might have been armed with a knife, fled without taking anything, police said.
The man, described as wearing a camouflage jacket and blue jeans, covered his face with a paper bag, according to police.
