The Des Moines Police Department would like to alert and request assistance locating a person wanted in connection for a potential fraudulent practice. On April 11, an unsolicited tree trimmer, Isaac Merle Carter, stopped at a residence in the 2400 block of E. 16th Street where an elderly couple was working in their yard. Carter stated he would trim trees for a fee of $475 — or $300 cash. The subject asked to use the restroom, and once inside the house, he took $300 off the kitchen counter, left and never came back. Carter has an active arrest warrant related to this incident and a prior history of similar scams. He is believed to be driving a white flatbed pickup truck with a tree trimming boom attached. Anyone with any information concerning the incident or the identification of the suspects is asked to contact the Des Moines Police Department, 515-283-4811 or Crime Stoppers of Central Iowa at 515-223-1400.

An assault was reported at the Kum & Go at 3104 University Ave. on April 24 at 7:45 p.m. The victim told officers two black males assaulted him inside the store in their early 20s. He also claimed the assailants were the sons of the female clerk at the store. The officers viewed the security footage inside and watched the victim spill some of his soda pop, which he was told to clean up. An argument began, and the two attackers appear to have been physically unprovoked. One punched the victim directly in the mouth, then the second jumped in as well. The clerk was not forthcoming about the names of her sons and claimed to be unable to spell their names. The medics treated the victim for a bloody lip, head pain and jaw pain.

The suspects left paperwork inside the home with a name of a teen who attends Hoover High School. CV
