Police are investigating an armed robbery Friday night at the Verizon store on Richmond Road.

Lexington police say a man went into the store, restrained an employee and stole phones and cash. He also stole an employee’s vehicle and abandoned it not far from the store.

Investigators say the robbery is similar to a previous cell phone store robbery that occurred recently, but police are not sure if the two situations are connected.

No arrests have been made. Police described the suspect as a young male wearing a dark gray hoodie, sunglasses and a COVID mask.
