Des Moines Police

Aug. 25-31

Aug. 27, 9 p.m.

Robbery on the bike trail east of 63rd Street and Railroad Avenue. The victim was riding his bicycle along the trail, and the next thing he remembered was waking up in the grass, he told police. Officers observed a black, swollen bruise around the victim's left eye and abrasions on his nose and cheek. He told police he wandered around in the dark for about four to five hours before finally finding his way out of the woods, but his bike was missing — a black Citizen Jamis Hybrid.

Aug. 29, 6:46 p.m.

Fire investigation at the 200 block of 15th Street. The reporting party told police a man intentionally started some leaves on fire next to where he was camping, at the Central Iowa Shelter grounds. He told cops he had left to go get dinner, then walked back to camp. When he arrived, the alleged suspect told him to come look at the fire he'd built, so he did, and then went back to his bed. He said the man continued to play with the fire and then said, "I gotta get outta here, or I'm going to go to jail." Then he took off on foot. Firefighters contained the fire, but the suspect was not located.

Aug. 29, 8:26 p.m.

Assault on a police officer at the 400 block of East Payton Street. Police were dispatched to assist staff at Orchard Place, 925 Porter Street, who were chasing a runaway juvenile. An officer followed until he caught up with the kid and told him to stop, but the juvenile continued on foot, so the officer sprayed pepper spray in his face and tried to pull him to the ground by his hood. That's when the suspect started throwing violent punches at the cop, hitting him in the arm, so he sprayed him again. As he was being cuffed, the suspect kicked the officer. He was arrested and charged. CV
