Two women were robbed at gunpoint while they sat in their car at McBean Park at approximately 7:30 p.m. Sept. 25. According to Lincoln Police, a young man entered the parked car with a handgun and, after a verbal exchange, took a purse. "Right now, it's an isolated incident," said Lincoln Police Lt. Paul Shelgren. Police have not identified the suspect at this time, and they are hoping the crime scene analysis will give them more leads. The suspect was described as being between approximately 18 to 20 years old, between 5-foot-6 and 5-foot-8, with blond hair.
