Des Moines police are investigating a potential hate crime after a 22-year-old man was brutally beaten early Saturday (5.16.2020) morning. According to the Des Moines Register, finding the culprits, described by the victim and witnesses as three White men, is of high priority for the local police.
DaQuan Jones told the Des Moines police that he was walking to his girlfriend’s house around 3:25 a.m. on Saturday when men, hurling racist comments, attacked him. Police who reported to the scene after witnesses phoned in the attack found Jones on the ground and noted injuries to his face and hands before being transported to the hospital. He is expected to make a full recovery.
On Sunday, the local chapter of the NAACP held a press conference to address the matter. In attendance was Jones’s father, Daryl Jones, Jr., who told reporters and other community members gathered that his son’s face was broken in five places. The NAACP also called on the Des Moines police to investigate the violent attack as a hate crime.
