5 attackers brutally beat, rob man at 30th and Downing light rail station

Victim identified as Gregory Moscato

DENVER - Five people were caught on camera committing a brutal assault and robbery at a light rail station in Denver and police hope the public can help to identify the suspects.

The victim was identified as Gregory Moscato, according to police records. Metro Denver Crime Stoppers said he is 23 years old.

"We have stepped up security not only with RTD, but with DPD," said Raquel Lopez, a Denver Police spokeswoman. "We are doing whatever we can to make sure the light rail station is secure and safe for people."

Time stamps on a newly-released still photo show the beating and robbery occurred at the 30th and Downing St. station on Sept. 18.

"At this time, I can’t talk about what condition the victim is in," said Lopez. "I can tell you he was transported at the time of the incident, but I'm not sure if he’s still at the hospital."

A clip from the video of the attack begins with the group surrounding Moscato, who has his back to a hand rail. As it begins, one suspect pushes the 23-year-old and hits him in the face, knocking the victim's cap off. Others start throwing punches and eventually the victim falls to the ground, where he is repeatedly kicked and stomped on.

News of the attack alarmed passengers the light rail station.

"It makes me a little nervous, I'm not going to lie," one woman told 7NEWS.

Anyone who can help to identify any of the suspects is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 720-913-7867. Tips can remain anonymous and are eligible for a reward of up to $2,000.
