Des Moines Police

Feb. 23-29


A man called police after he was allegedly assaulted during a robbery attempt around 2 a.m. on March 1. He reportedly was walking home from work at Walmart, with a couple bags of groceries, when two men reportedly pulled up in a car at the 100 block of Southeast Kenyon. One got out and asked him how much money he had, keeping one hand in his pocket as if he were armed. The alleged victim said he had no money, and tried to walk away. The suspect asked for his groceries and cell phone, but the victim kept walking, so the suspect reportedly hit him in the back of the head and side of his face. The victim took a few swings at him, and the assailant got back in the car and fled without taking any of the victim’s belongings.


The alleged suspect reportedly “went into a rage,” at the 2100 block of East 23rd Street, on Feb. 29. Starting around midnight and continuing for the next four hours, the suspect reportedly beat a female victim repeatedly, accusing her of stealing. She made many attempts to escape the house, but he barricaded the door and screwed the windows shut, and every time she got up, he reportedly beat her back to the ground, punching her multiple times in the head and kicking her repeatedly in the ribs. He also reportedly broke a chair over her head, slammed her against walls and dragged her around by her hair. She was finally able to call 911 from a cell phone, and the call was traced. Officer arrived and made the arrest, despite the suspect’s combative resistance. He was charged with kidnapping, enhanced domestic abuse assault and harassment. She was taken to the hospital but declined a protective order be issued.CV
