LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - Police are investigating after a home invasion at the home of some UK students.

Police say they got a call around 8:30 Tuesday morning about a robbery at a house on University Avenue.

A student who lives there told police three men broke in and held them at gunpoint. He said one of the men also punched him in the face.

Police say the invaders were in the house for some time before leaving with stolen items.

No shots were fired.

“We don’t really think there is an actual threat to the community at large, these individuals seemed to be looking for a very specific person,” said Lt. Andrew Daugherty, Lexington Police Department.

Police say the suspects were likely looking for someone who lived there before.

Lt. Daugherty says they have some ideas to figure out who was involved in the crime, but they didn’t give any details.
