State police are searching for two men who seriously injured a pizza-delivery driver during a robbery in Perry County, according to a news release issued Monday.
The Papa John's employee was making a delivery in the Bonnyman community Saturday when two men assaulted him, took his money and fled in his 2009 Dodge Journey, state police said.
Police did not release the victim's name. He suffered a serious head injury and was flown to University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital, where he was initially listed in critical condition.
No update on his condition was available Monday.

The robbers hit the victim with some type of blunt instrument, said trooper Tony Watts, spokesman for the Hazard state police post.
The driver walked 3 or 4 miles back to the pizza store after the attack. He had a cellphone and would have passed numerous houses on the way, but his head injury might have impaired his judgment.
Other employees called authorities after he returned to the store.
State police said no description of the two robbers was available.
The vehicle they took is silver, and the license number is 454-KZT.
Police have asked that anyone with information on the incident call (606) 435-6069 or 1-800-222-5555. Detective Chris Collins is handling the case.
