Lexington police say two robberies Monday afternoon might be connected.
A woman was robbed by a man who showed a handgun about 3 p.m. Monday at Eastland Shopping Center, said Lexington police Lt. Richard Bottoms. The man took money from the woman and fled on foot.
He was described as white, in his 20s, wearing glasses and dressed all in black, Bottoms said.
About 5:45 p.m., a man robbed a woman at the Kentucky Lighting & Supply at 960 Winchester Road, police said. The man, who showed a handgun, took a notebook holder from the woman, but he did not take any cash. He also ran away.
That man had a similar description, Bottoms said: white, about 5 feet, 5 inches tall, with curly hair. He was also wearing all black.
