Lincoln Police are investigating an attempted burglary that happened near J and South 20th around 2 this morning. A 47-year-old woman left her apartment for just a few minutes; when she came back there was an unknown man in her bedroom with a gun. He pushed her out of the way and left without taking anything.

The woman’s 22-year-old son was home at the time but didn’t know about the burglar until he heard his mother call for help. The suspect is described as a black male in his 20s, tall and slender, wearing dark clothing.
