Police Investigating Gas Station Robbery

Lexington Police are trying to find the man who held up a Shell Station early Tuesday morning.

Witnesses say this is the second time in two weeks this particular shell station was held up.

The same witness was there for both robberies and says the first time the suspect was wearing a ninja mask and carrying a kitchen knife.

He was unsuccessful in his attempt to steal money.

During the latest robbery however the suspect brought a gun and got away with the money.

The suspect walked into the Shell Station on Nicholasville Road at Southland Drive and pulled a gun on the clerk just before 1:00 A.M.

The suspect was covered from head-to-toe. Police do have surveilence video but say they will need help identifying the man.

He ran from the scene toward Southland Drive.

Police are hopeful more people will come forward with information.
