Suspect now charged with multiple Lexington gas station robberies

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - A well known Lexington boxer is facing new charges after police were able to connect him to a string of robberies from earlier this month.

Lexington Police originally arrested Brian Shawn Kirk at a motel after they say he robbed and assaulted a woman on Dalton Court.

Police say Kirk's description matched someone they were already looking for after three Speedways were robbed within 13 hours.

Kirk is now charged with those robberies.

He is scheduled to be in court on Tuesday.
