LINCOLN, Neb. – Lincoln Police caught both juveniles reportedly responsible for an assault of a 60-year-old woman near Northeast High School on Tuesday morning.

LPD said officers contacted a 60-year-old woman near St. Paul Avenue and 60th Street around 10 a .m. on Tuesday. The woman said she'd observed a vehicle driving recklessly in the area.

When she yelled at the vehicle to slow down, she said two juvenile males exited the vehicle and confronted her, according to police.

The victim told officers the two males began punching her, and during the altercation, one of the suspects pointed a gun at her.

When the suspects left the scene, the victim was run over by the rear wheel of the vehicle.

She was transported to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

One of the two juveniles was arrested and referred to the county attorney on Tuesday afternoon, Lincoln Police said.

Both juveniles have since been released and are no longer in custody, police said. One of the juveniles has been released to their parents.

Lincoln Northeast High School was very briefly placed into lockout status, according to a letter sent to parents.
