Hickman man arrested after stalking victim for over a month, sheriff’s office says

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – A Hickman man was arrested for the second time this month on suspicion of stalking, the Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office said.

Chief Deputy Ben Houchin said 45-year-old Jeffrey Dieken was taken into custody Thursday near Highway 77 and Old Cheney Road after a monthlong investigation.

He was arrested on suspicion of stalking and violating a protection order.

During the investigation, authorities found that Dieken had been harassing the victim for over a month.

Houchin said Dieken threatened, followed and harassed the victim during that time frame.

Earlier in December, authorities arrested Dieken on suspicion of stalking and a protection order violation.
