Shelbyville police are asking for the public's help in finding a Lexington man accused of beating and robbing a woman in Shelby County.
Shelbyville police are searching for Geremiah Woods. He's accused of attacking a mother of two who police say was just in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Amy Douglas says she feels lucky to be alive after what happened back on March 12. Around 11 p.m. Douglas was driving home when, by chance, she saw an old friend walking on the side of the road. That friend asked her for a ride. Douglas agreed, and headed for an apartment complex on Berea Street. Police think Woods got word about the two women heading toward the apartment, and when they arrived, that's when police say Woods, Lamont Washington and Ciereon Thompson pulled out guns and ran up to Douglas' minivan.
"They held the gun and was like, 'give me this, give me that,'" said Douglas. "And I was like, 'I don't have anything,' and then he (hit me), straight two times in my forehead."
Douglas was badly hurt in the incident, but is recovering, and her friend wasn't hurt. Meanwhile, Thompson and Washington have been taken into custody, but Woods is still on the loose. Shelbyville police say he could be in Lexington.
