Police Search For Armed Robber

Lexington police are searching for a man who robbed a business late Thursday morning.

They're canvassing neighborhoods near the Concord Custom Cleaners, close to the old Lexington Mall on Richmond Road.

Police were called to the business just before eleven for an armed robbery.

We're told at the time of the robbery there was one worker at the front of the store. She told police the man entered store, showed a gun and demanded money.

She says she was then ordered to go to the back of the store until the suspect left.

Police say the man was African-American, around 5'8" to six feet tall, wearing a dark black coat with fur around the hood.

Police are asking anyone who may have seen the suspect to contact them.
