Sixty-five-year-old Charles Brown was riding his bike about three miles south of the state capitol building on May 1 when he was assaulted by two white men. It was about 10:30 that night. Ten days later, Brown died from his injuries.
Des Moines police say someone called in a tip that led to the arrest of 28-year-old Michael Scott. Scott has been charged with second degree murder. The other suspect in the case hasn’t been caught.
A witness who saw the attack says she saw Brown ride his bike in that area frequently.
