Four men armed with handguns rob man and woman on Lexington's south side

Lexington police are investigating the armed robbery Tuesday of two people on Honey Jay Court off Centre Parkway on the city's south side.

At 11:27 p.m. Tuesday, officers responded to a report of a robbery, Lexington police spokeswoman Sherelle Roberts said. A woman told police that she was sitting in her car talking to a man who was standing beside the car when a maroon and tan Ford Expedition pulled up.

Four men with handguns got out, approached the man and put him on the ground, Roberts said. The men then made the woman get out of her car and took her keys and some money.

The four then drove off in the Expedition toward Centre Parkway, Roberts said.

One suspect wore a camouflage vest, two wore red hoodies and the fourth wore a black hoodie, she said.
