LINCOLN — A man is behind bars after he stole another man’s phone and later pulled out a knife and tried to stab him.

On Saturday, the 57-year-old man had his phone stolen from him after 27-year-old Scott Tillman asked to borrow it. Tillman rode away on a bike with the victim’s phone.

Two days later, the victim spotted Tillman again and confronted him about his stolen phone. Tillman then pulled out a knife and made a stabbing motion towards him. Officers found Tillman after a short pursuit on foot and were taken into custody and identified.

Tillman was arrested and charged with multiple offenses including terroristic threats and theft.
