Des Moines Police

Aug. 30 – Sept. 5

Drunk in the buff

Police responded early morning on Sept. 4 to the 2200 block of East Logan where witnesses alleged a man had been banging on the back door of an apartment building. Police walked up to observe a male lying on the sidewalk completely naked. His clothes were spread out on the sidewalk around him. Officers woke the suspect from a sleeping state and assisted him in putting on his pants. The suspect reportedly had bloodshot eyes, slurred speech and unsteady balance. He admitted to drinking downtown and refused a breath test. He was arrested on charges of public intoxication and booked into the Polk County Jail.

Jailhouse beef

A man and his wife entered a convenient store at the 400 block of Euclid Avenue around 6:30 p.m. on Sept. 4, when the alleged suspect approached them. The suspect said, “Hey, do you remember me from the joint?” and reportedly started hitting the man repeatedly causing a list of injuries. The alleged victim told police he did not recognize the assailant. Meanwhile, witnesses said there was another man in the driver’s seat whom did nothing but drive off with the suspect after the assault. The store video camera caught much of the incident on tape. Investigations continue.

Smooth Criminals

A small group of people were talking on a front porch around 2:40 a.m. on Sept. 3 at the 600 block of 16th Street when two guys came from around the side of the residence and reportedly pointed a handgun at them. With the gun pointed at one of the alleged victim’s head, the suspects forced all parties to the ground and had them empty their pockets. After retrieving $100 from another victim’s purse, the two men took off on foot. Police and nearby security officers attempted to find the eluding suspects, but as of press time they remain at large.
