Lexington police are investigating a robbery at the Family Dollar store on Race Street on Saturday morning.
Police Lt. Jesse Harris said a man with his face covered came into the store at 10:07 a.m., implied that he had a weapon and demanded cash from the clerk.
After taking the money he fled on foot, Harris said. Harris said the clerk was taken to the hospital for observation because she had chest pains after the incident.
Harris said police plan to review video footage to aid the investigation.
