It was a violent start to the day Friday for a Lexington couple attacked in their own home by a man with a hammer.
The man living at the home on Osage Court, off Woodhill Drive, went to the hospital with injuries.
He suffered injuries to his head and side after being hit with the hammer.
During the struggle, a woman inside the home came downstairs.
Police say she was hit once with the hammer, but didn't need to go to the hospital.
The suspect got away.
Police searched the area using K-9 units, but found no one.
