On the clock
Des Moines Police
May 31-June 6
The alleged victim told police he was riding
his bicycle along the 1900 block of East Bell
Avenue at about 11:30 p.m. on June 5 when a
man approached him asking if he had any weed
for sale. The victim replied, “No, and if I
did, I wouldn’t sell to you.” That offended
the alleged suspect, who reportedly pulled a
knife from his gym shorts and pointed it at
him. The victim said he ran away and left his
bike behind. Police transported him back to
the scene, where he identified the attacker.
The knife was also recovered nearby.
NAUGHTY NURSE, PERHAPS?
The alleged victim checked into Lutheran Hospital
around 2 p.m. on Feb. 21. His wallet was supposed
to be checked into the hospital safe with an
inventory of its contents. But, when the man
received his wallet back, he discovered items
were missing. Hospital staff admitted, contrary
to protocol, documentation that the victim’s
belongings had been checked into the safe could
not be found, including his debit card and Green
card. The hospital also reported the incident.
MYSTERIOUS MICHAEL JACKSON THIEF
Police were dispatched to the 3700 block of
Mariana Trail regarding an alleged theft that
occurred between 2-6 a.m. A woman said she was
awoken by the sound of a man breaking in through
the screen of the spare bedroom. He was wearing
a white jump suit and one black, sequined glove.
She said he was trying to break into her fiancé’s
safe box and asked her to go get him a knife.
She did, and he cut her with it and injected
her with what she presumed to be her fiancé’s
prescription Ritalin, she said. However, police
saw no evidence of forced entry, and reported
that “her injuries were all in places that she
could reach,” and “the cuts seemed to be superficial.”
Nothing was reported missing from the home.
