Two men were arrested Friday morning in Lincoln after police say one attacked his sister with a crowbar and tried to ram her car into traffic.

Twenty-year-old Ahmed Tuma (pictured left) was said to be upset with his sister because of her relationship with another woman. Police say Tuma and his friend, 20-year-old Nathan Marks (pictured right), went to the sister’s home Thursday afternoon where Tuma tried to hit her with a crowbar.

She and her friend got into a car when Tuma allegedly hit the windshield, trying to break the glass. The women drove off, but Tuma and Marks followed and tried to ram the women’s vehicle into oncoming traffic.

Tuma was arrested for attempted second-degree assault, criminal mischief, two counts of making terroristic threats and use of a weapon to commit a felony (all but the latter carry a hate crime enhancement). Marks faces charges of aiding and abetting, making terroristic threats and use of a weapon to commit a felony.
