Police asked for residents' help after an early-morning robbery Tuesday and a home invasion about two hours later.
A man was robbed about midnight on the 1900 block of Cambridge Drive, Lexington police Lt. Kevin Metcalf said.
The victim said he was walking to his apartment when he was approached by three men, Metcalf said. One man took out a handgun and demanded the victim's wallet and keys.
There were no injuries, Metcalf said.
Never miss a local story.
Police are looking for three black men, about 20 to 25 years old. Metcalf described them as thin, ranging in height from about 6-foot-1 to 6-foot-3.
About 2 a.m. on the 200 block of Arlington Avenue, a man awoke to an unknown man in his room, Metcalf said. The man fled after being confronted.
No one was injured and nothing was taken, Metcalf said.
Police are looking for a black man, wearing a teal striped shirt and white striped pants, Metcalf said. He is about 6 feet and 185 pounds.
Anyone with any information regarding the two crimes is asked to call the Lexington police department at (859) 258-3600.
