TRAILER PARK MYSTERIES
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.
MACE IN THE FACE
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
