Lincoln Police Investigate Two, Similar Attempted Robberies
(6-26-14) Lincoln Police are handling two cases of attempted armed robbery incidents Tuesday night that happened just blocks and minutes from each other. Three people sitting outside of an apartment near 20th and "G" had a man come up to them wanting money and holding a gun. They didn't have anything and the man left. About 15 minutes later, a 19-year-old woman walking through Sunken Gardens was held up by a man. When she didn't have any money to give him, the man ran off. He's described as standing about 5-7 to 5-8 in height.
