DES MOINES, Iowa — Police have made an arrest in the death of a 65-year-old man earlier this month.

Charles Wesley Brown died about a week after he was assaulted May 1 while riding his bicycle in the 2800 block of SE 14th Street. A witness said she saw two men get out of their car and attack Brown for what seemed like no reason.

Des Moines detectives arrested 28-year-old Michael Joseph Scott, of Des Moines, in connection with Brown’s murder.

Scott has been charged with second-degree murder.

A citizen’s tip led police to Scott.
