CBS Denver, December 1, 2014

Police in Denver would like the public’s help in identifying suspects in an assault and theft.

According to police, on Nov. 24 at approximately 11:10 p.m., a man was assaulted by several black men in front of an apartment complex located at 2300 Court Place.

“A vehicle was parked near the victim and several black male suspects exited the vehicle. The male suspects approached the victim and began yelling racial slurs directly at him,” police said in a statement. “The males began to physically assault the victim and then took property from him.”

Police said the suspects stopped assaulting the victim after they were confronted by witnesses to the attack.

“The suspects got back into their vehicle and fled the location toward Park Avenue. Shortly thereafter, the suspects attempted to accost the witnesses in a nearby Safeway parking lot.”
