Police were dispatched to Mercy Hospital around 2:30 a.m. on April 22.

One of the suspects reportedly tackled him on concrete causing him to break his elbow. Police continue investigations.


Drake University security alerted police at about 2 a.m. on April 22 about a possible drunk man urinating on a wall. When they attempted to confront the man, he reportedly “became belligerent,” poking each of them in the chest. He resisted as they tried to restrain him, and he went on to “be resistive and loudly insult officers.” He was charged with simple assault, public intox and false reporting.


On April 19 a male teen allegedly had a gun that he used to threaten a woman in order to learn of her nephew’s whereabouts. Witnesses led the police to three suspects running through yards north of Forest Avenue. One officer pursued them on foot, ordering them to stop, but they reportedly kept running. One female was eventually caught. Another officer nabbed the other two nearby. Investigations led to the arrest of a third male, totaling four people in all, who are reportedly affiliated with the local gang “Young Infamous.” All four were taken to Juvenile Corrections. CV
