Police looking for possible second man launching rocks into Lincoln homes
LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – Police are still looking for a rock-hurling man who caused over $5,000 in damage to homes in a north Lincoln neighborhood.
Earlier in the week, police reported 16 rock vandalisms, each in the neighborhood near 48th Street and Leighton Avenue.
The man caused about $5,410 in damage to homes in the area by tossing rocks, bricks and slabs of concrete through windows.
Those vandalisms all happened from Dec. 1 to Dec. 5, according to police.
At the time, police described the vandal as a 20- to 30-year-old man wearing black pants and a red sweatshirt with gray sleeves and a stripe.
Police reported another rock vandalism on Friday, but this time, in a different neighborhood, and possibly with a different perpetrator.
Officers were sent to a home Sunday near Goodhue Boulevard and C Street, where a rock was thrown through a window, causing about $200 in damage.
Investigators found photos of the suspect and are now asking for the community’s help in identifying the man, police said.
The suspect has been described as a man with a mustache wearing black boots, red pants, a blue sweatshirt, a gray coat and a dark-colored stocking cap with a stripe.
Since the vandalism happened in different neighborhoods, police are unsure if they are connected.
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.
