LINCOLN, Neb. (COLN) – Lincoln police arrested a man they say assaulted a man with a baseball bat on Wednesday.
Police said two people known to the suspect were arguing over a car when 39-year-old Jessie Luginbill got into the argument.
When officers arrived, they contacted a 36-year-old male victim, who explained that Luginbill had assaulted him after an argument.
The victim said Luginbill grabbed a knife that was about 10-12 inches long and tried to stab him several times, saying he was going to kill him.
The victim received several non-life-threatening wounds on both hands before he was able to break the knife away from Luginbill.
However, Luginbill then grabbed a bat and struck the victim over the head several times, causing swelling on the back of the victim’s head.
Luginbill left the residence before the officer’s arrival, but was later contacted by an LPD officer at a traffic stop near 2nd and O Street around 12:00 later that day.
Officers cited and filed Luginbill for 2nd degree assault (F), use of a weapon to commit a crime (F) and terrorist threats (F).
