Three Arrested In Oklahoma In Connection With Barneston Incident

An incident early Friday morning at Barneston ended with arrests in Oklahoma. Authorities had received a call shortly after 3 am from a man who had apparently met three men in Lincoln at the Peoples Mission. He offered to pay for a ride to Barneston, where they beat the man, 55 year old Robert Kleinjan of Lincoln, and threatened to shoot him. He escaped into a nearby field. The suspects stole his vehicle, which was found in Oklahoma, where the three men were detained, and will be extradited back to Nebraska. Kleinjan was treated at the Beatrice hospital for injuries sustained in the incident.
