Two officers reported to a fire at 2301 E. 33rd St. in Des Moines on April 18, arriving at about the same time as the Des Moines Fire Department. The basement of the house was engulfed in flames upon their arrival. After the fire was extinguished, officials determined the house was vacant at the time of the fire. The fire investigator was called to conduct further investigation on the incident, but there are no suspects at this time.
Police responded to a burglary report made by David Musgrove on April 19. Musgrove told police he noticed his garage had been broken into, and that it might have occurred overnight. The last time he locked the door and closed the garage was on April 18 at approximately 4:30 p.m. When Musgrove came out to the garage on April 19, he noticed damages to the door locking mechanism and plywood surrounding the doorknob. It appeared that an unknown tool was used to push in the doorknob system and pry open the door by breaking the plywood. Musgrove said there were no items of significance to be reported and the garage didn’t seem to be disturbed otherwise. There are no suspects at this time, and police took photographs of the damaged area.
Police responded to a report of domestic assault in Des Moines at 6:27 a.m. on April 17. The victim told police her uncle came to the house trying to cause issues with his sister. The suspect refused to leave when the victims said they were calling police, and instead he picked up a can of lighter fluid and sprayed it all over the front steps of the house. He pulled out a lighter and threatened to burn the house down. The victim reported hearing the suspect say “I will set this bitch on fire.” The suspect still had the lighter fluid in his hand when police arrived, though the victim stated he had thrown the lighter in to the street before they arrived. Police found the lighter in the street, and one of the victims obtained a cell phone video of the suspect walking around with the lighter and fluid. Both victims said they were very afraid and thought the suspect would light the house on fire. He was transported to the Polk County Jail. CV
