Lincoln police arrested former Husker football player Rickey Thenarse on suspicion of burglary early Saturday morning.

LPD Capt. Doug Srb says a 22-year-old woman called 911 around 12:40 a.m. and reported a man she didn’t know was knocking on her apartment door at 301 W. Charleston Street, and she didn’t want to answer. Later on, officials say they received a second call from the woman who said the man was inside.

When officers arrived, Srb said the victim told police the man had just run out of the apartment. Officers stopped 26-year-old Rickey Thenarse as he was getting into a car in the parking lot, and arrested him on suspicion of burglary.

Police say it looked like the apartment had been rummaged through, and some items were set out.
