Police: 2 inmates escaped from LCC, considered dangerous
UPDATED 6:45 PM CDT Jun 10, 2016


LINCOLN, Neb. —Authorities in Lincoln are searching for two inmates who escaped from the Lincoln Correctional Center Friday morning.

Police issued the following statement:

If residents in the area of south Lincoln, specifically S. 18th & G Streets, come home to find evidence their house may have been entered (cut window screen, damaged door, etc.), DO NOT ENTER. Instead, call 911 immediately. With the search underway for the two escaped inmates, it’s possible they may have taken shelter at an unoccupied home in the area.

Lincoln police said Armon Dixon, 37, and Timothy Clausen, 52, stole a red construction company truck on Highway 77 and Warlick Boulevard around 9:30 a.m.

Officials said the two are considered dangerous and should not be approached.

Lincoln Police released around 5 p.m. that they are looking for a 2007 red Pontiac G-6, which is registered to Armon Dixon's sister.

Dixon is serving a sentence of 158 to 278 years. In 2009, Dixon was arrested in Lincoln for attacking two women. Police said he raped one woman at a convenience store and the other at an apartment complex. Dixon lunged for an officer's gun when he was brought in for questioning and at Dixon's hearing, an officer testified that he was "convinced Dixon would have shot and killed him if he'd been able to get his gun."

Dixon is 5 feet 9 inches tall and weighs 152 pounds. He has brown eyes and black hair.

Clausen is serving a sentence of 51 years for sexual assault of a child in Douglas County, and for tampering with a witness. In the 1990s, Clausen was convicted of murder in Omaha, but the conviction was thrown out by the Nebraska Supreme Court. At his second trial, he was convicted of manslaughter and sentenced to 20 years in prison.

Clausen was released on parole in 2012 before going to prison in October 2013 for sexual assault of a child younger than 12 years old. Investigators said Clausen raped the child repeatedly over a period of five months. In 1995, Clausen and four other inmates escaped from Douglas County Corrections after creating a diversion on the third floor of the facility.

Clausen is 5 feet 8 inches tall with brown eyes and black hair and weighs 160 pounds.

Lincoln police and the Nebraska State Patrol were searching for the assailant who was last seen running from 59th Street.

Officials believed the individual may have crawled into a drainage outlet after assaulting two women earlier Saturday morning.

The two women assaulted were taken to a hospital after the assault.

Second prison escapee was planning robbery when police caught him in Spencer Apartments
Updated: 11:25 am, Thu Jun 16, 2016.

When police finally caught up with prison escapee Timothy Clausen, whom they’d been pursuing for more than five days, they found him sitting on an upstairs toilet in an apartment in north Omaha Wednesday evening, a revolver beside him.

From the first floor of the unit in the Spencer Apartments complex, police saw Clausen and told him to come down. He did.

And perhaps just in time.

Clausen, who had cut his hair and shaved his beard, told an officer that he intended to commit a robbery later in the evening to get money to fund his time on the lam, a police source said.


Mother of woman accused of helping prison escapee asks, 'How could she be that dumb?'

A 50-year-old Omaha woman helped transport an escapee from Lincoln to Omaha, a Douglas County prosecutor said Wednesday during the woman’s initial court appearance.

Wanda T. Minor was charged with being an accessory to a felony.

Judge Sheryl Lohaus set bail at $500,000, which means Minor would have to pay 10 percent, or $50,000, to be released from jail. Lohaus set Minor’s next court appearance for July 18.

Minor helped 52-year-old Timothy Clausen escape, authorities said. Clausen was caught in northeast Omaha on Wednesday evening.
