Pictures released of suspected car used in Frankfort restaurant robbery

FRANKFORT, Ky. (WKYT) - Frankfort Police have now released pictures of a suspected vehicle used in a violent restaurant robbery that happened a week ago.

The car is described as a light-colored 1990's model, four-door sedan, either a Buick of Oldsmobile. We've attached pictures for your reference.

Mike Loman, the robbery victim, says when he was staring down the barrel of a gun he could only think one thing.

"Run like hell, that's it, just run," said Loman, the assistant manager of Captain D's on Versailles Road in Frankfort.

He says after he closed the restaurant Wednesday night, he walked out the back door and saw a man wearing a ski mask and holding a handgun.

"He yelled, then I heard him ask me for the money. I took off running and then I heard a gunshot," Loman said.

He says he dropped the money and ran inside the restaurant and called police.

Police say robbers may pull guns during restaurant robberies but they don't normally pull the trigger. So they say because the suspect shot at Loman, it takes the crime to the next level.

"It's a very, very serious incident and it tells us that their state of mind was that they'd do whatever it took to get that money," said Capt. Robert Warfel.

Loman has three sons and says he was relieved he was able to go home to them.

"It does make you think quite a bit more about what could've happened. It could've been a lot worse,” he said.

Loman says they retraced his steps and found the bullet hit the ground about a foot from where he was standing.

"When I walk out I'm more cautious. I look around before I walk out now," he said.

Police say they have surveillance video of the suspect that should help them track him down.
