LPD: Woman pulls a gun on Lyft driver who refused to take her to adult novelty store

A Lyft driver reported a passenger pulled a gun on him after he refused to take her to an adult novelty store, authorities said. 

The 42-year-old male driver told Lincoln police officers he picked up a man and a woman who wanted to be taken to Romantix in south Lincoln around 5 a.m. Wednesday. 

The store was closed when they arrived, and the passengers asked if they could pay cash to go to the other Romantix location by the airport, police said.

When the driver told them he wouldn’t take them and they needed to get out his vehicle, the man got out but the woman refused and pulled a black handgun out and threatened the driver with it, police said. 

The driver ran from the vehicle and told officers he saw the man and woman later leave the area on foot.

Police say the investigation is ongoing and they are working to identify the passengers involved.
