Suspect in violent crimes turns himself in

Police have been looking for him since last week and this afternoon the manhunt is finally over for a man suspected in several violent crimes.

Lexington police say 30-year-old Pleas Kavanaugh tried to abduct a woman last week at the downtown transit center.

He's also accused of a robbery back in October.

Kavanaugh says he's innocent, and some supporters staged a protest as he turned himself in at the Lexington Police Department.

Kavanaugh's attorney says that they will now prepare for his arraignment.

It's too early to talk about their defense.
