LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - Police are looking for two men who forced their way into a man's Lexington apartment, tied up the people inside using zip-ties, and then stole cash and cellphones.

Police told us that they were called to an apartment on Expo Court in Lexington just before 3 a.m Tuesday.

A victim there told police two men, armed with guns, kicked his door in and forced their way into his apartment. He said the suspects then tied him, and two others up using zip-ties.

The men took cash and personal property, including cellphones. While police do not have a good description of the suspects, the victim did say that both were wearing dark clothing and had black bandannas over their faces.

Police said there was a long delay between the robbery, and when police were actually called to the scene. No one was injured.
