Man robs Jessamine County gas station at gunpoint

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - Jessamine County deputies say an armed man walked into the Circle K on Bellerive Boulevard just after 3 a.m. Saturday and robbed the clerk at gunpoint.

The clerk says he stared down the barrel of the man's gun until he handed over the money in the cash register.

The robbery was caught on surveillance tape.

Investigators describe the suspected robber as having a dark complexion and standing about 5-feet 6-inches tall. He was wearing a dark hat and jacket, blue shorts and white shoes with a white bandanna covering his face.

Deputies tell us after the man grabbed the money, he ran down Bellerive Boulevard.

Investigators say they canvassed the area but didn't find him.

Deputies tell us they asked Lexington police to also be on the lookout because they say the man may have crossed into Fayette County.

We’re told deputies haven't identified any suspects at this point.
