On the clock
Des Moines Police
Police responded to an apartment at the 1000
block of 26th Street at 5:40 p.m. on June 19
where the resident said he was robbed at gunpoint
by two men. He answered the door to find the
two men at the door pretending to know a mutual
acquaintance. When they stepped inside, one
allegedly pulled a gun on him and the other
pulled a knife on his female guest. They demanded
money, so he reportedly gave them $150. The
officer noted that the female witness had been
involved in an accident case a week earlier
and suspected that she knew the two robbers
based on witness testimonies of that case, but
she denied it.
A woman checked into the emergency room at
11:30 p.m. on June 19 and told staff that she
was in a fight at a party where she had gone
to buy a joint soaked in embalming fluid (called
“smoking piss,” she said). She also said she
and some friends had gone to a store to buy
a bottle of liquor, and once back inside the
vehicle, one occupant could not find the bottle.
When they discovered it under the woman’s seat,
they accused her of trying to steal it. So,
instead of drinking the bottle, they allegedly
broke it over the woman’s head. No arrests were
