Woman Robbed Outside of Bethany Area Home



LINCOLN -- An armed robbery outside of a northeast Lincoln home is also under investigation.   Police were called to a home near 65th and Aylesworth just before 11pm Sunday, after a 33-year-old woman was robbed of her purse at gunpoint by an unknown man.   The woman was unloading stuff out of her car when the man came up with a black handgun and walked her inside with the gun pointed at the back of her head.  After she gave the man her purse, the woman yelled for her husband and the suspect ran off.  Police Officer Katie Flood says the woman wasn't hurt and the only thing taken was her purse.   Flood says they are looking for a man described as  having a darker skin tone, possibly Hispanic, about 5-8 with an average build.
