It was a terrifying morning for a Lincoln woman when two men kicked in her front door to get inside her home.
Police were called to the Williamsburg Apartments in the Tierra Park neighborhood just south of 33rd and Highway 2 around 3:30 Wednesday morning.
The 63–year–old victim was asleep when suddenly she was woken up, then heard two men's voices inside her home.
"I hollered for them to get out and then they came into the bedroom and turned on the light and they asked for my money," the victim said.
She says one of the men was wearing a ski mask and he pointed a gun at her and repeatedly demanded her money. She told them she didn't carry cash, but pointed them to where her purse was sitting on the floor.
"I wasn't scared but I knew whatever they wanted, I was going to give them because the guy had a gun."
The victim says the men ran out the front door and took off. She says her neighbors saw the men leave in a small gold car, similar to a Toyota Corolla.
Police are looking for the two men but don't have any suspects at this time. They say the whole robbery could have been a mistaken address.
"Typically when we have home invasion robberies, there has been other suspicious activity related to the address or the people involved," Officer Katie Flood said. "In this case, the woman has nothing that, I guess alerts police to any illegal activity that she's been involved with."
Thankfully the woman wasn't injured.
She says it may take a while to feel comfortable sleeping alone in her apartment again, but mostly, she just wants her purse back.
