Security Guard Foils Robbery Attempt

Lexington Police are searching for a man who tried to hold up a Lexington drug store and ended up being chased by a security guard.

It happened late Tuesday night at the Rite Aid at Winchester Road near Eastland Parkway.

Police say the clerk either didn't obey the robber or the robber lost some of his nerve.

A security guard who happened to be nearby chased the man away.

The suspect is described as a white man in his late 20's or early 30's, between 5'4" and 5'6".

Police say the suspect was last seen wearing a black t-shirt and blue jean shorts.
