Crime spree hits Lincoln on Halloween

A very eerie situation on Halloween as a manhunt continues in Lincoln.

Police were told the suspects were wearing the masks seen in the movie, Scream.

It all started when police were first called to Dirt Cheap, a tobacco shop, near 27th and Randolph around 7:30 Thursday.

Two men wearing the masks had guns and demanded money.

Police set up a perimeter and had the K-9 unit out looking for the suspects.

About a half hour later, a man is stabbed in the arm in a home near 45th and O. Apparently, the suspect knocked on the door, demanded money and stabbed the man. Police say he's going to be okay.

The suspect didn't get away with any cash. Police aren't sure if the two incidents are related.

"It appears that someone, a suspect that we have not been able to contact, came up to the residence, got into a struggle with one of the individuals that lives here, and stabbed him two or three times. Couple times in the arm, couple times in the abdomen," Lincoln Police Captain, Don Scheinost, said.

Police have been looking for the suspects. At one point, they searched around an apartment complex. But so far, no arrests.

To make this Halloween night even more eventful, the Family Dollar store at 25th and N was also robbed.

Police are looking into any similarities in the robberies.
