Lexington Police are searching for the man who tried to hold up the driver of a tanker truck early Monday.
The driver ran away from the Speedway on Southland Drive when he saw the would-be robber pull out a gun.
The trucker told police he later walked back to his truck and called 911 once he felt safe.
Police are currently searching for a red pickup truck that the victim saw drive away from the scene.
Nothing was stolen.
