Man robbed of shoes, wallet by woman he met on Facebook, Lincoln Police say

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – A Lincoln man is without some shoes and a wallet after a Facebook meet-up turned sour, police say.

Around 11 a.m. Thursday, a 26-year-old man told police he was robbed by a woman he met through Facebook.

He and the woman had agreed to meet at his house near 10th and C Streets, police say.

By the time the victim got home, he noticed that the woman’s car was already in the driveway and that she had already gone inside.

When he went inside, he found the woman and another unknown female each holding a pair of Jordan sneakers, police say.

He confronted both women, who then ripped his jeans’ front pocket and stole his wallet.

Police say the thieves got off with $2,000, a debit card and the shoes, which were worth about $200.

An investigation is ongoing, and anyone with information is asked to call Lincoln Police at 402-441-6000 or Crime Stoppers at 402-475-3600.
