Lexington Police are searching for two men, who robbed a Lexington business Monday afternoon with semi-automatic rifles.

The robbery happened after 4pm at the 'U-Stor-It' self storage business on East 7th Street. Witnesses say the men burst in the door with their assault rifles drawn, forced everyone in the business to the ground, stole the cash box, and then escaped in a dark gray four door vehicle.

Police do not have a good suspect description, but the men were said to be wearing light green colored camouflage hoodies and had their faces covered.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call Lexington police.
