From the Des Moines Register, KSDK NewsChannel 5:

Des Moines police are trying to determine what led to a series of attacks outside the Iowa State Fairgrounds over the weekend that included the assault of two police officers.

Sgt. David Murillo stated in a report on Friday night: On-duty officers at the fairgrounds advise there was a group of 30 to 40 individuals roaming the fairgrounds openly calling it ‘beat whitey night.’

And State Rep. Ako Abdul-Samad, D-Des Moines said he doesn’t have enough information to decide if the fights were racially motivated.
