8 Arrested After Downtown Attacks Continue

Jeffrey Wolf and Jace Larson, KUSA-TV (Denver), May 28, 2010

Seemingly-random attacks in downtown Denver may not be over. 9Wants to Know has learned that the attacks on innocent bystanders have continued despite the arrest of 38 people late last year.


Denver Police arrested eight people in a new round of arrests this month. Three went to jail on Wednesday in connection with last Friday’s assault.

Five others have been charged or arrested for an attack on May 15 and another two attacks on May 8.


Investigators tell 9Wants to Know that gang members were randomly attacking white and Hispanic men.

Some of the people involved in the crime spree are thought to be involved in the murder of University of Colorado graduate student Andrew Graham in November. He rode the light rail home to Centennial and police believe gang members followed him for blocks before murdering him.


Anyone with information about any of the attacks is urged to call Denver Crime Stoppers at 720-913-STOP (7867). You can remain anonymous and could be eligible for a cash reward.
