Lincoln police arrested Bryce Peterson, 25, early Monday after alert neighbors reported a burglary in progress at a home near 48th and Van Dorn streets.

Officer Erin Spilker said callers said they heard glass breaking and saw one or two people going into a vacant home being renovated in the 3100 block of South 48th Street.

As police surrounded the home, they saw a man inside who ran but was caught several blocks away. His Ford Fusion found in the area had construction equipment inside that the 71-year-old homeowner said belonged to him.

Spilker said they arrested Peterson on suspicion of burglary, failure to obey an order of police and carrying a concealed weapon after allegedly finding a 7-inch knife in the pocket of his sweatshirt.
