Jessamine couple robbed at home; deputies search for intruder

The Jessamine County Sheriff's Office is investigating a Friday-morning robbery that was reported at a home on Catnip Hill Road north of Nicholasville.

Shortly after 9 a.m. Friday, a woman encountered a man who pulled a knife and then took her purse and medicine, Chief Deputy Allen Peel said.

The woman's husband was home at the time but was unaware of the intruder, Peel said. The woman was not hurt.

The intruder was described as a muscular white man, about 5 feet 10 to 6 feet tall. He was in his mid-20s and had short blond hair. He was wearing a white ball cap.

Investigators said the man reportedly left in a white, four-door Ford Taurus.
