Lexington police continue to search for two suspects who robbed a man and fired a shot early Friday morning.
Police say the victim was riding his bike along Seventh Street, near Maple Avenue around 1:15 a.m., when the two men approached. One robber pulled a handgun, and the duo took the victim's wallet. The man with the gun then fired a shot into the air, and one of the suspects took the victim's bike.
The victim was not hurt.
Police got a vague description of the robbers. Both were described as black men, one standing about 5 feet 8 inches to 5 feet 10 inches tall with facial hair. He was wearing a black shirt and blue jeans. The other man was heavy set.
The victim said there were also two white women in the area at the time, but police say they don't know if they were involved.
