Escapee Dixon Captured in Lincoln



(Lincoln, Neb.)- At 2:10 pm., Saturday, June 11, Lincoln Corrections Center Escapee Armon Dixon, 37, was taken into custody in Lincoln without incident.

At 11:12 a.m., authorities responded to a call of a physical assault in the 5900 block of Norfolk Drive.  Two females in the residence identified the attacker as a black male. Based on information from the victims, law enforcement believed the male to be escapee Armon Dixon. The two women from the residence were both taken to a local hospital for treatment of injuries sustained in the assault. A female victim in her 60’s was admitted for observation and a female victim in her 20’s was treated and released. The investigation into the assault continues.

Officers from the Nebraska State Patrol, Lincoln Police Department, Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office, Metro Fugitive Task Force and University of Nebraska Police Department responded to the area and an extensive search for the suspect began.

Just before 11:30 a.m., a male matching Dixon’s description was seen entering the storm drainage sytem in the area of 49th & Francis Street.  A K-9 was used to track him into the storm drain. Authorities then utilized an NSP robot to locate Dixon hiding in the storm drain.  At approximately 2:10 p.m., Dixon exited the drain and was taken into custody without incident.

Dixon is being held at a secure location as the investigation continues.

A multi-agency effort continues in the search for fugitive Timothy Clausen. Clausen is an African-American male, 5’8”, 160 lbs., with brown hair and brown eyes. Clausen does not have distinguishing marks or tattoos and could be wearing his hair in cornrows or pulled back.

“Our work is not over,” said Chief Jeff Bliemeister, Lincoln Police Dept. “Our efforts will continue until we have the second escapee in custody.”

Clausen is considered dangerous and citizens are encouraged to call 911, the Nebraska State Patrol Highway Helpline at *55 from any cellphone or the Lincoln Police Department Crimestoppers at 402-475-3600 with any information that could lead to his arrest.

“We want citizens to know we are utilizing all available resources in the search for the remaining escapee”, said Colonel Brad Rice, Superintendent of the Nebraska State Patrol. “We encourage citizens to be aware and vigilant as our efforts to capture him continue.” ###
