Robber hits two Lexington gas stations

Lexington Police think the same man may have tried robbing two different gas stations early Thursday.

He first tried robbing the Speedway on Richmond Road near Mt. Tabor by implying he had a weapon.

About ten minutes later, a man matching a similar description hit the Circle K down the road.

That time, he got away with cash.

In both cases, police say the robber held his face down and was wearing a hoodie.

He also had salt and pepper facial hair. The robber was last seen getting into an SUV.

Police are reviewing surveillance video.
