Police are looking for three masked suspects who tried to rob a man off Richmond Road in Lexington Tuesday night.
Police say the victim told them he was smoking outside a home along Willman Lane when the three men wearing ski-masks approached. Two of the suspects pulled handguns and the trio demanded money. When the victim told them he didn't have anything, one of the robbers punched him in the face. Police say the victim ran to the home of an off-duty police officer, who chased the group. The suspects got into a car and sped away.
The victim was not seriously injured.
Police say they didn't get a good description of the getaway car.
