Police arrest 2nd man for allegedly trying to meet underage Lincoln girl for sex


A second man has been arrested for allegedly trying to meet a 14-year-old Lincoln girl for sex, following an investigation sparked by a report from the girl’s mother.

Officer Luke Bonkiewicz said they arrested Nahush Karki, 20, of 5620 Abbey Court, on suspicion of enticing a minor by electronic communication device at about 8 p.m. Thursday night after Karki showed up at 70th and A streets to meet the girl. Investigators were there instead.

Early the next morning, they arrested a 35-year-old Crete man, Nicholas Coates, on suspicion of the same offense.

Police said the investigation that nabbed both men started Nov. 18, after the teenager’s mom reported to police that she had been looking through her daughter’s cellphone and found that men had been sending her inappropriate pictures through a social media app. Investigators continued the texts, which led to the agreement to meet, police say.
