Police are now holding a suspect in the weekend robbery of an elderly Lincoln couple — and it’s a relative.
Investigators arrested 44-year-old Patrick Snyder on Monday. The Lincoln man is charged in the robbery of his grandparents on Saturday night.
Police say Snyder got into an argument with the couple and held a knife to the throat of his 83-year-old grandfather.
He then allegedly pushed his 81-year-old grandmother, snatched her wallet and keys and took off in their minivan.
Snyder reportedly called the elderly couple the following day to say he’d returned the van and the keys were found outside their apartment door.
Snyder is jailed on charges of robbery, making terroristic threats and use of a weapon to commit a felony.
