Lexington police: Suspect asks for directions, then robs man early Wednesday

Lexington police have made an arrest in connection with an armed robbery Wednesday morning. The suspect's name has not yet been released.

The suspect was arrested at a home on St. Margaret Drive after officers traced a gray Ford SUV with West Virginia license plates, police spokeswoman Sherelle Roberts said.

Police initially were sent to Lakeshore Drive about 7 a.m. Wednesday, after a man reported being robbed at gunpoint in front of his home.

Roberts said the victim told officers that he was walking to his truck to go to work when a man approached, asked him for directions, and then pulled a revolver and demanded money.

The robber fled with the victim's wallet, driving a gray vehicle with West Virginia plates, police said.

Officers arrested the suspect shortly afterward, Roberts said.
