Blotter: Two employees allegedly robbed at knife point

Two male employees of a retail store were allegedly robbed at knife point Sunday evening, Lewisville police said.

Capt. Jay Powell said the two reported that a man armed with a knife approached them at 7:40 p.m. in the 800 block of State Highway 121 and allegedly demanded their valuables. One victim was cut in the arm and the other on the leg, police said. They were taken to Lewisville Medical Center and treated for their wounds.

Powell said the alleged assailant got away before police arrived after he had taken a wedding ring and a wallet from the store employees.
