Prisoner in Van: ‘I Didn’t Hear Nothing’



The second man who was arrested and put into the same van as Freddie Gray has spoken out about what he heard that day. 22-year-old Baltimore resident Donta Allen says he was unaware there was another prisoner in the van, as there was a divider separating him from Gray.

“When I got in the van, I didn’t hear nothing,” he told WBALTV. “It was a smooth ride. We went straight to the police station. All I heard was a little banging for about four seconds. I just heard little banging, just little banging.”

When asked if he told police that he heard Gray banging his own head against the walls of the van, Allen said, “I told homicide that. I don’t work for the police. I did not tell the police nothing.” Read more at
