Pool hall owner hit with crowbar, robbed

Police are on the hunt for two robbers who injured a pool hall owner early Wednesday.

It happened in the parking lot of B.J.'s Pool Hall on South Killarney Lane in Richmond just after 1 a.m.

Police say two men with crowbars robbed the owner, 60-year old Bobby Johnson, after he closed up shop for the night. Police say he was carrying a money bag.

Johnson was transported to U.K. Hospital with a head injury. He's since been released.

Police think the robbers got away in an older-model, red four-door car with a female driver.

Officers believe the two men have likely been inside the pool hall before. They also believe the trio may live in the area.
