Police tow vehicle possibly used by robbery suspect

Police may be one step closer to finding a man who robbed a woman in a busy Lexington shopping area.

Officers say a taxi driver saw the robber snatch a woman's purse as she was leaving the Walmart on Nicholasville Road late Tuesday night.

The driver followed the robber to his vehicle, where police say the taxi driver blocked the suspect in.

The suspect ended up ramming the cab to get away.

Moments earlier, police say the same man may have tried snatching a woman's purse from the Walmart on New Circle Road.

Hour later, a police officer saw a silver Ford Escape setting outside an apartment building on Harrodsburg Road.

Police looked over the vehicle and towed it away.

They say it was a rental.

So far, no one has been arrested.
