The victim left the bathroom and told store employees to call police. A resident followed the robbers and called police to report where the truck had gone. Officers found the truck, which was reported stolen from Lexington, at a nearby apartment complex, where it had been abandoned.
Later, officers found Morris and Whitaker, who had been stabbed. Whitaker was taken to a hospital for treatment. Both were being held in the Jessamine County jail.
More charges are possible, police said.
