LPD: Man charged with strangulation after assaulting girlfriend

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — On Monday, Sept. 7, Lincoln Police arrested 22-year-old Brandon Huggins after a teen reported that he assaulted and threatened to kill her.
Lincoln police were called to the area of NW 48th and W Knight drive around 3:30 p.m. after receiving a call of ‘unknown nature.’
When they arrived, police contacted a 19-year-old female victim. She claimed to have had an argument with her boyfriend and told police she was ultimately assaulted by him.
The victim was taken to a separate location to make a police report after others in the area tried to stop the assault. Officers observed the woman to have injuries consistent with an assault, but none that were life-threatening.

Around 5 p.m., officers recognized Huggins, who was said to be responsible for the assault, driving in a car near 47th and W Seward. While attempting a traffic stop on the car, the vehicle sped off and officers terminated a pursuit.

The same car was later pulled over near NW 12th and W Cornhusker, where they arrested Huggins for strangulation, domestic assault, terroristic threats, and willful reckless driving.
