Officer Katie Flood with the Lincoln Police Department confirmed police are investigating the report of a sexual assault.
“The 20 year old female victim arrived at a Lincoln hospital Sunday afternoon and reported the incident. She knows the suspect and he has been contacted. It is against our policy to name a suspect in any case – unless a warrant has been issued or there is an immediate threat to public safety. It is still an active investigation, no arrests have been made,” Flood told Nebraska Radio Network in an email.
