One man was shot in the leg and another man was pistol-whipped during an assault on Ironworks Pike, according to Lexington police.
The two victims told investigators that a man pulled over in a black or blue two-door car just before 10 p.m. Wednesday, assaulted them and drove away, Lt. Jeremy Tuttle said. The men were taken to a hospital with injuries that were not thought to be life-threatening.
The two were loading a trailer next to the road when the car pulled up, police said.
The assailant didn’t try to take anything from the victims, Tuttle said. No arrests had been made as of 10 a.m. Thursday.
“It’s early in the investigation, and we are not entirely sure what led up to the assault,” police spokeswoman Brenna Angel said.
