FRANKFORT, KY (WLEX) - Police in Frankfort continue to investigate two home invasion
robberies that investigators say could be linked.
Police say two victims woke up around 3:30 a.m. Sunday and found
two men armed with handguns inside their apartment along
Centennial Avenue. The robbers forced the victims against a wall
with guns to their backs and told them to hand over everything.
After the suspects went through one of the victim's pockets, the
second victim tried to run out the door. One of the suspects
fired a shot, hitting the fleeing man in the forearm. At that
point, the suspects ran off with an undetermined amount of cash
Investigators say it appears the robbers entered the apartment
through an unlocked door.
Police gave the following descriptions of the robbers:
Suspect # 1; Black male, 6'2" tall, approximately 190 lbs,
possibly with green eyes, wearing blue jeans, beige Converse
shoes, thick black jacket and a black ski mask. He was armed with
a large revolver (possibly stainless steel).
Suspect #2; Black male, 5'10'', approximately 170 lbs., wearing
sweat pants, thick black jacket, and a red bandanna over the
lower portion of his face. This suspect fired the shot that
struck the victim.
The second robbery happened Tuesday afternoon at the Leawood
Square Apartments on Leawood Drive.
Police say somebody rang the victim's doorbell around 1:30 p.m.
The victim told investigators that he looked outside and saw a
man in a tan jacket with his back to the door. Assuming it was a
maintenance man, the victim opened the door and two armed men
forced their way inside. The suspects made the victim get down on
the floor, tied him up, blindfolded him and demanded money. The
two men stole some items and left in the victim's car. Police
recovered the white Chevy Monte Carlo about an hour later at the
Century Plaza Shopping Center.
The victim only got a good look at one suspect. He was described
as a black male, 5' 11'', 190 pounds, wearing a tan work jacket
jeans and a ski mask. He was armed with a blue steel
On Wednesday, police released a photo of one of the possible
suspects using the victim's credit card.

crime to call Detective Jeff Fogg at 502 875-8523.
