The Lincoln Police Department has released a list of safety tips in response to a series of assaults, thefts and robberies that have occurred at parties in Lincoln.

Police believe the crimes were committed by a group of uninvited guests. An investigation is ongoing and “numerous” arrests have been made, police say.

The safety tips include:

  • Only attend parties where you know the host.
  • Avoid large gatherings or gatherings with illegal activity occurring.
  • Use the buddy system and, if drinking, keep a sober chaperone.
  • Trust your instincts and immediately leave any situation that feels wrong.
  • Call the police if you are threatened or if you witness assaultive behavior.
  • Call the police to assist in ending a party where there are uninvited guests who you think could cause problems.

Investigators ask that anyone with information call the Lincoln Police Department at 402-441-6000.
