On the clock

Des Moines Police

Aug. 22-28


A man returned home to his trailer at the 400 block of East Broadway at 3 p.m. on Aug. 26 after reportedly being gone only 10 minutes. He found someone had broken into his home and unplugged all the electronic units. Nothing appeared to be missing, but he found two knife marks on the door. The man told police he suspected his neighbors, as he’s had an ongoing dispute with other residents of the trailer park. No arrests were made.


Around 3:30 a.m. on Sunday, Aug. 26, police were dispatched to the 2400 block of Woodland Avenue on the report of an assault. Upon arrival, witnesses and the alleged victim said the victim’s brother had ran into the kitchen, grabbed a knife and reportedly threatened to stab his brother “in the face” over an X-box game. Both the victim and witnesses had to wrestle the knife away from the suspect. Later, Des Moines police received a report that these brothers fight constantly when they drink.


Officers were dispatched to the 1700 block of East Army Post Road after gunshots were reported being fired from an after-hours bar around 3:20 a.m. Officers arrived and found a large crowd in the street fighting. After seeing the lights and sirens, the crowd dispersed and a smaller group moved to the parking lot. Five or six people continued throwing punches until officers unleashed mace. The officers then found two men on the ground, both in headlocks. The officer subsequently maced the two men until they separated and placed both in handcuffs. One of the men was found to have a warrant for fifth-degree theft. Both men received medical treatment and were transported to jail by wagon. CV
