LINCOLN, Neb. - Police are searching for a suspect after she pulled a gun on an employee at Salsarita's Fresh Mexican Grill.

The incident took place on Sunday around 8 p.m., when the woman came into the restaurant and began accusing employees of stealing her purse.

The woman said she left her purse outside near a dumpster earlier in the day, and when she returned it was gone.

The employees assured the woman they did not take it, but she continued to linger around the restaurant and started going through the dumpster.

A short time later, when an employee was leaving the location, he alerted the woman that police had been called.

The suspect then pulled out a handgun and pointed it toward the employee.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police.
