Three male juveniles have been charged in connection with a weekend carjacking and home invasion. Lexington Police charged the 16, 15, and 14-year-old suspects each with Robbery 1st, Fleeing/Evading 1st, and Receiving Stolen Property (Auto).
At 4:20 a.m. Saturday, September 28, officers responded to the Cook Out restaurant on South Broadway for a reported robbery. The victim told officers he was sitting in his blue Chevrolet Camaro when two unknown individuals approached, pointed a gun at him, and demanded the vehicle. The victim got out of the vehicle and the suspects drove away in the Camaro.
Around 12:45 a.m. Sunday, September 29, officers were dispatched to a home on Golfview Drive for a robbery that had just occurred. The victims stated that several male subjects armed with handguns entered the home and demanded money. A witness stated that he saw several individuals leave the area in three vehicles, one of which was a dark-colored Camaro.
An officer located the Camaro approximately two hours later. He confirmed it was the same vehicle that was stolen the day prior and attempted a traffic stop. The vehicle fled, eventually stopping on Jennifer Road. The three juvenile suspects were detained, questioned, and charged in connection to the incidents that occurred on Golfview and in the parking lot of Cook Out.
The suspects are currently housed in the Fayette Regional Juvenile Detention Center.
