LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18)– One suspect is in custody and another is hurt after an armed robbery led to a police chase in Lexington.

It started just after 1 a.m. Monday in the Cardinal Valley area.

A male victim told police that a car pulled up next to him, a man pulled out a gun, and demanded his belongings before driving away.

Police later found a car on Oxford Circle with two men and two women inside, who all jumped out of the car and ran.

Police have been able to catch up with the women, one of whom had to be treated for injuries she suffered while trying to escape. The men are still on the loose.

If you have any information, call police.
