A Lincoln pup is still at home safe with its owner after a thief tried to steal it while on a walk.
Lincoln Police say just before 7:00 on Tuesday, a twenty year old woman reported that she was walking her puppy near 16th and G Street when a man walked up behind her and pulled her leggings down.
The man then reportedly reached for her puppy, but the dog bit the man and he ran off. The victim believed the man pulled her pants down to distract her so he could try to steal her puppy. She described the man as appearing to be a homeless white male in his 30s, 5’9, medium build with long dark hair and no facial hair.
