Lincoln police are investigating two attempted armed robberies they believe are connected. The first one happened Tuesday night near 20th and G Streets.
Police say the suspect pulled out a gun and asked three people if they had any money. When they said no he patted them down and left empty–handed.
Fifteen minutes later, police say he asked a woman the same thing at the Sunken Gardens near 27th and Capitol Parkway. Again, the suspect left without any cash.
"Based on the timeframe and location of the robberies we do feel that they are most likely related. only description we have is a male about 5 foot 7 to 5 foot 8 inches tall," Officer Katie Flood said.
