Arrest made in hit-and-run death of Des Moines man

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Police in Des Moines say they’ve arrested a suspect in the death of a man at a homeless camp on the city’s north side.

Police said in a news release Friday that 21-year-old Donterius Jamar Bomar, of Des Moines, was arrested Tuesday afternoon on suspicion of assaulting a business employee and stealing the employee’s car within hours of being released from jail on a separate attempted murder charge. Police believe Bomar was driving that stolen car when he hit 69-year-old Charles Michael Childs and kept going.

Childs was found dead two days later in a tent at a homeless camp.
