Hagerstown police Wednesday night continued to search for two males involved in the armed robbery and carjacking of a China King restaurant delivery driver Tuesday night.

Kwokkuen Leung, 55, was attempting to make a delivery in the 400 block of North Potomac Street at about 10:40 p.m. when he was approached by two males, one of whom was carrying a knife, police said.

The pair assaulted Leung, robbed him and stole his vehicle, then fled eastbound on Broadway, according to a city police news release.

The robbers were described as two males, possibly teenagers. One was wearing a white T-shirt, the other was wearing a dark colored T-shirt.

Leung sustained minor injuries and did not require medical treatment, according to police.
