2 arrested after man with gunshot wound dumped in Des Moines

DES MOINES — Police in Des Moines say two people have been arrested and charged with attempted murder after a man with a gunshot wound to his neck was thrown from a car into a parking lot.

Nineteen-year-old Tyron Cratty and 20 years-old Madalynn Perez, both of Des Moines, were arrested shortly after 1 a.m. Saturday. Besides attempted murder charges, each faces charges of robbery and going armed with intent.

The arrests came after police were called Friday afternoon for a report of a shooting victim lying in the Chapel Ridge Apartment lot.

A witness reported seeing people get out of a car and pull someone out of the back seat, dumping him in the lot before speeding off. The victim's name has not been released.
