Woman says she was robbed at gunpoint after ATM stop in Lexington

LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — Lexington police were investigating after a woman said she was robbed at gunpoint early Monday morning after accepting a ride to an automated teller machine.

The woman told police that she threw money at the suspects and fled.

Police said no one was hurt in the incident and that they were searching for suspects.
