Police were searching Monday morning for three suspects involved in an assault and attempted robbery outside a Lexington McDonald's.
A man told police he was renting a DVD from a Redbox kiosk shortly after 2 a.m. Monday outside the McDonald's at 2321 Versailles Road when a man approached him and asked for $5. He declined, and the unknown suspect struck him in the head with a bottle, said Chris Sutton, a Lexington police spokesman.
The man ran to his car and the suspect threw the bottle at him, striking him in the eye. He sustained minor injuries, Sutton said.
A second suspect tried to get into the man's vehicle, but did not. One of the vehicle's windows was broken, he told police.

The two suspects fled with a third person toward an apartment complex behind the restaurant. Police searched the area, but could not find them, Sutton said.
The first suspect was described as a Hispanic man between 20 to 25 years, about 5-foot-9. He had a thin-line beard and wore a black hooded sweatshirt and black shorts, Sutton said. There was no description of the other two suspects.
