LPD: Man with hatchet chases off would-be robber in south Lincoln

Lincoln Police say a man with a hatchet chased off a man trying to rob him. 

LPD said a 32-year-old man reported he was working on a drywall job near 13th and Goodhue around 8 p.m. Tuesday. 

A man approached him and demanded he turn over his money and keys, police said. 

The man had his hand behind his back, and threatened to pull a gun on the victim, police said. 

The victim, however, was holding a hatchet hammer and threatened to use it on the suspect before he could pull a gun out, police said. 

The suspect ran away, and the victim was not harmed.
