DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -

A Des Moines man has been accused of attacking six people inside an apartment.

Police say they found 21-year-old Demarco Moore bloody and distraught early Sunday at an apartment complex. They say he was at an apartment hanging out with friends when he began attacking the people there with him.

Police say someone allegedly said something that upset Moore. He is accused of choking one victim and using a knife and causing minor blade wounds on others.

Witnesses and victims in the apartment fought back against Moore, who received injuries to his face. All the victims refused medical treatment.

The Des Moines Register says Moore was arrested and taken to a local hospital for treatment. He faces six counts of simple assault. Court records do not list an attorney.
