A Lexington man was taken to the hospital after being pistol-whipped during a robbery inside his home Tuesday morning.
The robbery happened at an apartment complex at 325 Bainbridge Drive between Palumbo Drive and Man 'O War Boulevard. The victim, identified in a police report as Mike Turner, shares the apartment with his mother, 69, who was at home during the robbery.
Two men knocked at the door around 3:15 a.m., police spokeswoman Sherelle Roberts said. When one of the victims opened the door, the men burst into the apartment and demanded money. One of the men had a gun.
"The described suspects unlawfully entered the victim's home and struck one of the victims on the head with a handgun," the report said.

The men fled with an undisclosed amount of cash, Roberts said. Police dogs were unable to track them.
Turner was taken to the hospital and treated for a head injury. He has since been released.
