Juvenile suspected in three separate vandalism cases
LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — Sunday afternoon, around 2 o’clock, Lincoln police officers investigated three separate vandalisms they believed to be connected.
In each incident, a rock or similar hard object was thrown against residences’ windows.
During one incident, a witness identified a 12-year-old male as a possible suspect.
Officers made contact with the 12-year-old in the 2200 block of Euclid Avenue. The juvenile refused to comply with officer orders.
When police attempted to seat him in a police car, he began fighting against the officers. Officer report he kicked the side of the police cruiser, tried to damage the camera inside the cruiser, and attempted to use the handcuffs on his wrist to also damage the cruiser.
Officers eventually calmed the juvenile down and transported him back to his mother, where they completed a juvenile referral for the vandalism.
At this time, officers were only able to link him to the vandalism in the 1400 block of Rose Street, that resulted in 100 dollars in damage.
Lincoln police is asking if residents in southwest Lincoln suffered similar vandalism (i.e., a smashed or broken residential window during late morning or early afternoon on Sunday the 13th), to please call LPD at 402-441-6000.
