Police arrested a Lincoln man Tuesday afternoon on suspicion of a home break-in and sexual assault reported Sunday.
Officer Erin Spilker said police had been looking for 32-year-old Allen Busby since the incident that occurred at about 1 a.m. in the 40th and A streets neighborhood. A 28-year-old woman hid and called 911 after hearing a loud bang like someone was trying to break into her home.
Spilker said when police arrived, the woman ran to the officer, a man chasing behind her until he saw the cruiser. She said Busby, whom she knew, had broken in and physically and sexually assaulted her, with her 2-year-old child asleep in a nearby bedroom.
The victim told police Busby had sent her threatening text messages and showed up at her work.
Spilker said Busby was caught on a neighbor's security video getting into her yard through a locked fence.
On Tuesday, police arrested him on suspicion of first-degree sexual assault, burglary, third-degree domestic assault and child abuse.
