Employee punched during robbery at Lexington business

We're tracking a crime alert in Lexington. Police are looking for two men who robbed an insurance company.

It happened Tuesday afternoon at the Barnes Insurance office on Winchester Road. Lexington Police say two men walked into the business and, without making any demands, started grabbing some money.

They say when an employee tried to stop them, one of the suspects punched him. Witnesses also had a close call when the suspects left.
