Des Moines Police

June 28-July 3


Police were called to the 1100 block of Cocker Street on July 1 regarding a fight that broke out at party. The alleged suspect got into an argument with a female guest over the way he treats women. The argument turned physical when he reportedly punched the woman above the eye, knocking her to the ground, and continued to punch her repeatedly in the face until another woman stepped in. He reportedly punched her in the face several times, too, before going back to beating the first victim. The first victim was transported to the hospital, the second woman refused, despite obvious injuries, and the suspect fled before police arrived. A warrant is out for his arrest, and he’s being charged with two counts of willful injury.


Police were dispatched to Lutheran Hospital on June 30 regarding a stabbing that had happened at the Sergeant Park Apartments, 3606 E. Douglas Ave. A woman watched as her boyfriend walked around the building with the alleged suspect. When he returned he was bleeding from a serious stab wound, so she took him to ER. She was able to identify the man for police later, but no arrests were made.


Police arrived at the 1600 block of Capitol Avenue on July 1 to find a woman and her children standing out in the front yard, as smoke plumed from behind the house. The fire was coming from the northwest corner of the house. The woman had been alerted to the fire by a neighbor beating on the door, telling her to get out with the children. The woman told police she had no reason to suspect anyone, but arson investigators are on the case. CV
