Between January 19th and February 4th, Lexington Police say a man, caught on camera, went into an Arby's and two Burger King restaurants in the early morning hours.

"The suspect enters the restaurant just as the business is opening for breakfast hours around 5:30 or 6:30 in the morning. He approaches the manager and demands money from the registers," says Detective Dave Richardson with Lexington Police.

That's when the man, armed with a handgun, forces employees to lie on the ground as he leaves out of the back of the business.

"He's generally wearing a black ski mask, black hooded sweatshirt, blue pants, black gloves and white tennis shoes. He's described as a male black, approximately 5'7"-5'9", medium build, 150-160 pounds, with a deeper voice," says Detective Richardson.

Police say he's robbed three of these restaurants and unsuccessfully attempted another on February 11th before getting into a foot pursuit with police. They continue to look for this fast food robber.

Crime Stoppers is offering a $1,000 cash reward for information leading to an arrest in this case. Call Crime Stoppers today at 859-253-2020. It's a free call and it's anonymous.
