Lexington man comes home to find burglar in apartment

LEXINGTON, Ky. - Lexington police say a burglary suspect is on the run after stealing a television from an apartment at the The Mansion Apartment Homes Wednesday morning.

Police were called out the complex around 3 a.m. Wednesday. They say a man was returning home to his apartment when he noticed another man inside trying to steal his TV.

The victim sprayed that suspect with pepper spray, but according to police the suspect still managed to get away with the TV in tow.

Police think the burglar had a car nearby because he would not have been able to carry the TV far while on foot.

Lexington police brought out a K9 unit to the complex Wednesday morning but could not find the suspect.

Police did not release a description of the suspect, but they say the victim thinks he recognizes him.
