Two Lincoln men were robbed of their cell phones and a money clip early Sunday morning.

Lincoln Police say they were notified around 2:30 a.m.

Capt. David Beggs says the two men were walking toward their vehicle near 12th and New Hampshire streets when they were confronted by a group of people.

Beggs says one of the victims reported he thought one of the group members had a gun.

The two men flagged down a police officer shortly after they were robbed. Nobody was injured.

Police say they do not have suspects or a clear description of the responsible party.
