First of 2 suspects in robbery at Macy's at Flatiron Crossings Mall surrenders

BROOMFIELD, Colo. - One of the two suspects seen in surveillance photos from a Macy's store robbery has turned himself in to police.

Broomfield Police first asked the public for help identifying the two suspects on from the April 22 robbery on Thursday. Officers said a man and a woman entered the store at 1:54 p.m. and security employees saw the pair stealing merchandise.

When the security employees attempted to stop the man, he allegedly assaulted one of them and fled the store through the south doors that lead to the parking lot, police said. The man and woman left together in an older model four-door red BMW, according to police.

Tyler Cane Nelson, 20, reportedly surrendered to the Denver Police Department Monday and identified himself as the male robbery suspect at the Flatiron Crossings Mall. Broomfield Police say he was transported to the Broomfield County Jail to be held on the charges of robbery, theft without authorization by threat or deception and third degree assault.

Nelson's bond is set at $5,000.

Broomfield police say they still need assistance identifying the female suspect. She is described as white, 20 to 25 years old. She has protruding top teeth, is slightly shorter than the man and she weighs about 140 pounds. She has dark hair and was wearing a polka-dot dress and white sandals.

Anyone who can help is asked to call Detective Derek Mayer at 303-464-5750 or the police department at 303-438-6400.
