Lincoln Motel Manager Robbed After Being Detained In Room By Couple

Lincoln police are looking for a grouped of people that detained the owner of a local motel and then robbed her.

Lincoln Police Captain Jake Dilsaver says around 5:30 p.m. Monday afternoon, a couple went to see the manager of the Oak Park motel in the 900 block of Oak street, to ask about renting rooms.

“The owner accompanied them to a nearby room to show them,” says Dilsaver. “However they held her there or forced her to stay there for several minutes.”

Dilsaver says during that time, two apparent associates of the couple rifled through the manager’s office, stealing money and some personal items.

There were no injuries to the victim and no weapons were used.

The investigation is ongoing.
