Police arrest armed robber in gas station


Nicholasville Police tell us they arrested an armed robber in the Chevron gas station at South Main Street and Chestnut Street.

The suspect has been identified as David M. Rigsby. Investigators say Rigsby entered the Chevron station Friday night, approached the register, and demanded money. The clerk stepped back from the counter and pretended to not understand the robber's demands.

A customer had seen a man walking toward the store with a bandana around his face and alerted store employees.

While the robber was demanding money from the registers, another employee was in a back room calling police.

Officers entered the station and took Rigsby into custody at gunpoint. Upon arresting him, police found that he had been armed with a knife.

Rigsby was taken into custody without incident. None of the customers or store employees were hurt.
