Third suspect arrested in violent robbery in Walmart parking lot

By  | 

Late Sunday night, Lexington Police arrested a third suspect in a robbery in the parking lot of a Walmart store.

The suspect is Robert L. Taylor, Jr., 19.

Police say Taylor, along with three other men, followed the female victim to the store at Nicholasville Road and Man O'War Boulevard, punched her in the face and stole her purse Sunday afternoon.

The search continues for a 17 year old, who police say had his one-year-old baby with him during the hold-up.

Right now, investigators are trying to determine if he is already in jail in Madison County on an unrelated charge.

Shortly after the robbery, Lexington Police arrested Kerrion Washington and Anthony Jenkins, who are both 18. They are charged with complicity to commit robbery.

Police say the victim and her attackers did not know each other, and this does appear to have been a random act of violence.

The victim was treated at Central Baptist Hospital but has since been treated and released.
