A robber knocked his victim out cold at a Lexington business late Tuesday night.
Police say the victim was working on a car at Metro Auto Body on Majuan Road, off Georgetown Road, when a man approached him, and asked for a cigarette and some change. When the victim turned to get something, the suspect punched him in the face, knocking him unconscious. Investigators say the victim woke up without his wallet and cell phone.
EMS took the victim to the hospital as a precaution, but officials say they expect him to be OK.
Police continue to investigate.
