Three men from central Kentucky have been arrested and charged with first-degree robbery and second-degree assault following a month-long investigation by the Jessamine County Sheriff’s Department.
Keith T. Gaines, 24, of Nicholasville; Emilio Hernandez, 18, of Georgetown; and Steven Lee Gregory, 21, of Lexington allegedly attacked a 21-year-old male on Glass Mill Road, near Figg Lane in the Wilmore area on Sept. 18, according to a news release from the sheriff’s office.
The incident occurred when the three men approached the victim in their car as he was walking along the road, Chief Deputy Allen Peel said. The victim knew Gaines and got in the car, but as he was getting out of the car a short time later, the men allegedly attacked the victim, robbing him of an undisclosed amount of cash and assaulting him with knives. The victim was left on the side of the road with no clothes on and dispatch received a call from an unknown female who stopped along the road to help him, Peel said.
