Bloody nose by punch
On the morning of March 7, police were sent to a south-side residence. As police arrived on the scene, a man was found sitting on the curb in front of the house and bleeding from his nose and mouth. The victim had returned his 5-year-old daughter to his ex-girlfriend. As the man walked the young girl to the front door, his ex-girlfriend’s father came outside, grabbed the girl and pulled her inside. The father then turned around and began punching the victim in the face, knocking him to the ground. The father allegedly mounted the man and kept punching him in the face. The ex-girlfriend said she didn’t see anything. She was only awakened after she heard the young girl’s screams. The ex told the police officer that her dad thinks the man has stolen things from the house in the past, but, according to her, he hasn’t.
Hit and run
On March 7, police were dispatched to the Walmart on Southeast 14th Street in reference to a hit and run complaint. The victim was an employee at the supercenter who was on her lunch break. She reported to the officer that she was stopped at the intersection of Southeast 36th Street and Army Post Road, and she pulled out to go westbound. In front of her was an older Oldsmobile. The victim told the officer there was enough time for her to pull out, but suddenly the vehicle sped up and was honking at and tailgating her. The victim pulled over to the side of the road, and the suspect pulled over behind her, stopping only inches from her bumper. Then the suspect’s vehicle backed up and rammed into the rear of the victim’s car. The suspect pulled up beside her and the driver, a white male in his 50s with gray hair and a long gray goatee, yelled at her. The suspect then sped away at a high rate of speed. The victim was unable to get the license plate number because the suspect’s vehicle was very dirty. The victim had paint damage and a small dent on her car but wasn’t injured.
Sticks and stones
Police were dispatched to First Street after an alleged assault. The male victim stated he was walking on the sidewalk on the north side when a boy threw a stick at him and struck him in the right arm. The victim called the police and left the scene. The police officer observed a small scrape on the man’s upper arm. A witness corroborated the victim’s claims.
Punch, pull, push
Police were sent to a north side residence on March 7 and found a woman had been beat up by three other women outside her home. Allegedly, one of the suspects had been staying at the victim’s home but had been asked to leave for lack of financial contribution. The victim had visible wounds, including lacerations, bruises and swelling to the face. The victim refused medical treatment but is willing to press charges. It appeared to the victim that one of the other three women had recorded the altercation on a cell phone camera.
Society is the victim
On March 7, officers were dispatched to the north side of Des Moines on reports of gunfire. The reporting party said she was directed to take her children inside by two tall black males wearing backpacks and glasses. The men then pulled out handguns and began firing in a different direction. The reporting party did not see who was being targeted, and the men ran away. CV
