Police believe a Lincoln man tried to sexually assault a woman Saturday morning. 

It happened just after 11:00 in an alley near 17th and Sumner Streets. 

Authorities said 58–year–old Abejide Abejide pushed a 40–year–old woman against a wall and pulled her pants down.

They said a worker heard the woman crying for help and called police.

He’s currently in jail for first–degree attempted sexual assault.
