Police say a couple was robbed at gunpoint in Woodland Park Thursday night.

Lexington police say a man and woman, both 21, were sitting on bleachers at the softball field when a man riding a bike rode up and showed them a small silver handgun.

Officers say the suspect took a cell phone, a wallet, and two packs of cigarettes before riding off toward Clay Avenue.

Canines were used in the search for the man, but--because of an event taking place at the park this weekend--heavy foot traffic stopped them from getting anything.

There was no physical or clothing description of the suspect other than he was a black male.
