LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) – Nebraska has agreed to pay $850,000 to a woman and her daughter who were attacked in Lincoln by one of two convicted sex offenders who escaped from maximum security prison by hiding in laundry carts.
The Omaha World-Herald reports that the attorney for Cindi and Christine Allen called the June 2016 case a “tragedy” that has continued to cause complications for the woman.
After escaping from the Lincoln Correctional Center, Armon Dixon ultimately found his way to a Lincoln apartment where 61-year-old Cindi Allen lived. He entered through an unlocked patio door, grabbing and threatening Allen’s 21-year-old daughter. When the women resisted, Dixon beat them with a blunt object.
