Lexington police are looking for two men who robbed a Marathon Food Mart on Centre Parkway on Tuesday night.

Police said the men entered the store at 1161 Centre Parkway about 10:30 p.m., and one of them displayed a revolver and demanded cash.

They fled with money from the cash register, according to a police report.

Officers said a store employee recognized one of the men as a regular customer but didn't know his name. The man was described as speaking Arabic, wearing a red ball cap and having distinctive twists or braids in his hair.

There was no description on the second man.
