A 25-year-old Lincoln man is in jail, accused of attacking his sister for money. Police say Mehdi Darvishi lunged at the victim with a knife but she was able to jump out of the way.
The 29-year-old sister tells police that about 7:30 pm Friday, Darvishi asked for money but she refused. He grabbed a kitchen knife and lunged toward her legs with a slashing motion.
The woman says after she jumped out of the way, she was afraid that Darvishi was actually going to kill her. So she gave him $86 so he would leave.
The mother was reported as a witness to the incident.
Darvishi was arrested early Saturday morning and booked for robbery, attempted first degree assault, and use of a weapon to commit a felony.
