Colorado Springs police are looking for two men who robbed and pistol whipped an employee early Friday at a gas station near Austin Bluffs Parkway and Barnes Road.

Two armed men walked into the Kum & Go at 4512 Austin Bluffs Parkway just before 1:30 a.m. and demanded cash, police said.

One of them whacked an employee in the head, causing "severe lacerations."

The assailants fled and have not been located by police.
