LPD: Man arrested after threatening to ‘kill everyone’

LPD arrested a man on Tuesday who was threatening his girlfriend and her friend with a knife

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN)-On May 11, around 1:37 p.m., LPD officers were called to the Hall of Justice on a report that a victim was being followed by a person who had assaulted her.

Later, LPD identified the assaulter as 27-year-old Corey J. Dodds.

Police say the 20-year-old victim told that that Dodds, her boyfriend, had elbowed her in the face while she was in his car, causing her lower lip to swell with a small laceration.

The victim told LPD that she had called her 66-year-old friend for help, and she got in his vehicle when he arrived. But the victim says that Dodds followed her into the friend’s car, took out a knife, threatened to “kill everyone”, and then lunged towards the friend, but did not assault him.

Eventually, officers say there were able to get Dodds’ hands behind his back, despite his continued efforts to resist arrest. Officers reported finding a knife in Dodds’ vehicle that was suspected to be the one used in the altercation.

Dodds was arrested for Terroristic Threats, Domestic Assault, Resisting Arrest, and Obstruction of a Police Officer.
