Second arrest made in Thanksgiving day robbery

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - Police have arrested a second person accused in an armed holiday robbery.

Lexington police tracked down and arrested Colten Hite, 22, Tuesday night on Liberty Road.

Police tell WKYT the officer recognized Hite's vehicle from a description given by two victims after a robbery late Thanksgiving night.

That's when police say three men, armed with a knife, gun and brass knuckles, robbed two men of their wallets and cell phones in Woodland Park. Police say they were able to track the suspects using the stolen phones, and quickly made one arrest that night.

When police pulled over Hite Tuesday night, they found a gun and brass knuckles inside his car.

Hite is charged with robbery.
