7/10/2014 - Sexual Assault of a 4 Year Old. The Des Moines Police Department is investigating the sexual assault of a 4 yr old that occurred on July 9th 2014 at approximately 11:30 am. The assault happened near 5528 Meredith Dr. in Des Moines. The male suspect led the victim to a tree line behind some garages where the assault took place. The victim ran home shortly after and reported the incident to her mother who called the police. The victim was not physically harmed and was only able to provide a limited description of the suspect—an adult size black male wearing a white shirt and green and black shorts. Des Moines Police Detectives are diligently investigating this case working to identify the suspect.
Anyone who may have seen an individual wearing similar clothes in the area of the apartments at 5528 Meredith or 5423 Aurora is asked to contact Des Moines Detective Kelly at 515-283-1589 or The Polk County Crime Stoppers anonymously at 515-223-1400.
The Des Moines Police Department would also like to emphasize the importance of proper and constant supervision of young children. We would also like to remind parents and families that it is appropriate to remind children frequently about “stranger danger” and the importance of not talking with strangers or going places with them.
