Man in custody after woman reports attempted robbery

A man is in custody after an attempted robbery in Lexington Wednesday morning.

It happened around 8:30 a.m. at the intersection of Alexandria Drive and Cross Keys Road.

A woman says a man approached her while she was in a car, then pulled a mask over his face, and pointed a gun at her.

The woman says she then drove off and called police.

After getting some tips, police swarmed an apartment a few blocks away on Alexandria Drive, where they thought the suspect was.

At 11:30 a.m., 32-year-old Joshua Kersky surrendered to police.

Investigators say he had two criminal trespassing warrants out against him.

Kersky was taken into custody. Police are now interviewing him to see if he's connected to the attempted robbery.

Police do say Kersky fits the description of the suspect.
