Des Moines Police
March 8, 3:25 a.m.
Burglary at the South Port Sports Bar, 1100 block of Army Post
Road. Police were dispatched because of an alarm. They saw a coin-operated
game was knocked over. The front of it was broken, and the cash
box was gone. Tool marks were present on the juke box. No one was
found inside, but officers decided entry was probably gained through
an old air duct, which had a hole cut in it and a rope hanging down
out of it.
March 7, 8:30 a.m.
Robbery at the Des Moines Water Works, 2200 block of George Flagg
Parkway. A woman went to DMWW to pay her water bill. A man in line
behind her noticed her envelope containing money for her rent and
water bill. When she got to the parking lot, the man approached
her and tried to pull her purse off of her arm. The purse ripped
and the envelope full of cash fell to the ground. He picked up the
money and left in a red vehicle.

Assault at the 3000 block of East University Avenue. The victim

have been pushed down.”
