Man stabbed near New Circle Road strip club

A man was stabbed Wednesday morning during what Lexington police say might have been a robbery.

The man had been walking along a path near the Deja Vu strip club on North New Circle Road about 11 a.m. when he was approached, Lt. Ann Welch said.

A person demanded money from the man, and when the man didn't comply, he was stabbed, Welch said.

The victim flagged down an ambulance and was taken to University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital before police arrived, Welch said.

Police were able to briefly talk to the victim at the hospital, but he was still receiving treatment, Welch said.

There is not yet a description of the attacker, but detectives will get more information from the victim after he has been treated, Welch said.
