Investigators were searching Wednesday for a masked man with a handgun who tried to rob the Kroger at Bellerive Plaza, according to the Jessamine County Sheriff's Office.
The man entered the Kroger at 6:45 a.m., walked to a checkout area and approached a woman, but she ran toward the back of the store. The man turned around and left.
The man drove away in a gold-colored sedan, possibly a Nissan Maxima. He was last seen driving on Agape Drive and headed toward Lexington.
The man is described as 6 feet tall and about 185 pounds. He was wearing dark-colored sweat pants and a light-colored Old Navy zip-up shirt. His face was covered with a white cloth that had eyeholes.
