A man suffered minor injuries early Thursday when two men assaulted him on Winchester Road, Lexington police said.

Shortly after midnight, officers were called to the Sportsman Motel, 1107 Winchester Road, where the 58-year-old victim was waiting, said Lexington police Lt. Mark Brand.

The victim told police that two men, one armed with a knife, approached him at the closed Sonic drive-in restaurant and demanded money. When the victim said he didn't have any, one man assaulted him with the knife and the other hit him with an unidentified object, Brand said.

The two ran toward New Circle Road. The victim went to Sportsman Motel, where someone called police.

The two assailants were described as being between 20 and 30 years old, and both wore green jackets.

The victim was treated for a small cut on his left hand and some bumps on his head, Brand said. Nothing was taken from the victim.
