Man Mugged In Local Popular Park

A Central Kentucky man is recovering after being mugged in a popular park.

Police said the 62 year-old man was walking at Lake Mingo Park in Nicholasville; around four Sunday morning when he was jumped by three men. The attackers stole the man's cell phone and car keys; then fled on foot. The victim was taken to the hospital with contusions to his head and trauma to his ears.

Police said they want to question the three males captured in a Nicholasville Wal-Mart surveillance photos. The pictures were taken just before the men were kicked out of the the Wal-Mart.

Investigators said they closely match the description the victim gave of his attackers.

    this comment is for Lucky...I have seen more bad news come out of London in the past month then any other town in central Kentucky.

    Central Ky doesn't flinch at accepting coal severance monies generated in eastern and western Kentucky--the least you could do is take our trash.

    You should move to London. We are blessed with a good life. Yes there is some crime and bad people here, but you never hear of home invasions and robberies like in your area.

    This doesn't shock me, it's Nicholasville! This place has turned into nothing but a Central KY escape for rural trash from the eastern and western part of our state. Nicholasville used to be a decent suburb to raise a family, and now it has more oxycontin and meth labs than Lexington. 20 years ago I would've never thought we'd see the day when it was safer in downtown Lexington than anywhere in Jessamine County...but that day has already come and gone. If we could get some attention, some police presence, and get rid of this good ol' boys mentality here (reminds me a lot of the rural counties in this state), maybe we could bust these trash-bags and clean this county up. But don't expect it because they might lose votes if they start cracking down on drugs here, it's the county's largest employer and the bulk of the money here comes from drug sales. Sad...truly sad.
