The University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s Police Department arrested a “dangerous subject” on the school’s downtown campus Tuesday afternoon after urging students and residents to avoid the area.

Four minutes after warning residents to stay away from the area, the department announced on Twitter they had arrested the subject at around 1:15 p.m. Tuesday.

Lincoln Police Capt. Todd Kocian said Tuesday afternoon that city’s police department took two juveniles into custody on UNL’s campus in connection to a stolen car.

On Wednesday morning, LPD Sgt. Chris Vollmer said two boys, 14 and 16, were referred to the Lancaster County Attorney’s Office on suspicion of theft by receiving after officers tracked a stolen 2022 Jeep Wrangler to the 800 block of 14th Street, near UNL’s rec center.

Vollmer said one of the boys was apprehended at 12:50 p.m. Tuesday, but the other wasn’t arrested until 1:12 p.m., a minute before the university’s police department announced it had taken the “dangerous subject” into custody.
