LPD: Suspect Sought In Weekend Stabbing

A Lincoln man reports being stabbed while chasing a man off his property.

Officer Erin Spilker says police were called to an apartment building in the 800 block of South 11th St. just before 8 p.m on reports of a stabbing.

On arrival, officers made contact with a 45-year-old man with a stab wound to his abdomen who reported being attacked fending off a man who tried to break into his apartment.

“He grabbed his cane, opened the door and chased the make while telling him to leave,” said Spilker. “At one point, the male turned around and charged at the victim, pushed him up against the wall, and stabbed him.”

At that point, the victim said he retreated into his apartment and called police.

A search is ongoing for the suspect, whom the victim says he recognized from a previous disturbance at the apartments.

Anyone who may have more information is encouraged to call the police.
