Lexington police are searching for two men who robbed a newspaper delivery man early Monday.
Richard Morgan, retail sales supervisor for the Herald-Leader, said one of the newspaper's substitute contractors was robbed.
Police said the man, who has not been identified, was putting papers into a box at 652 East Main Street, in front of Long John Silver's, about 5:20 a.m. When the delivery man turned away from the box, he was confronted by two men, one of whom was holding a gun. The men demanded money, and the delivery man complied, giving them $700 worth of change and $30 from his wallet, according to police. He was not injured.
Police said the two suspects are men in their 20s. One was wearing an orange shirt and a white hat, and had a handgun. The other had dreadlocks and was wearing a blue shirt and jeans.
