Two people who threatened others — one with a double-bladed ax and the other with a BB gun that looked like a Glock 19 handgun — have been arrested in Lincoln.

The first incident was reported to police as a 33-year-old man chasing a 47-year-old man down an alley with a hatchet.

When police arrived near 11th and F Streets about 4:20 p.m. Friday, the 47-year-old said he was approached by the 33-year-old who yelled, “I need my money.”

The 47-year-old told police that he didn’t owe the man money but had been robbed by the 33-year-old in the past.

Officers found a double-bladed ax at the 33-year-old’s home after officers obtained a search warrant, police said.

The 33-year-old was arrested on suspicion of terroristic threats, use of a deadly weapon to commit a felony and possession of a deadly weapon by a prohibited person.
