Denver police seek help in identifying suspects in at least 15 street robberies, business holdups

DENVER - Denver police are seeking help identifying at least four men who they say were involved in about 15 robberies in the last three weeks.

A surveillance image from a convenience store shows four men with their heads, faces and hands covered. Three of the men are wearing all black and at least two of them appear to be holding weapons.

Police are linking the four men, and possibly a fifth, to the robbery spree that began in Denver around Jan. 24, and may include three other robberies in neighboring jurisdictions.

Only two of the crimes involved businesses, robbed at gunpoint. Early Sunday morning, a gas station convenience store was robbed around 4:20 a.m. near West 45th Avenue and Sheridan Boulevard. Almost 90 minutes later, a 7-Eleven near Yale Avenue and Wadsworth Boulevard was also robbed.

The majority of the crimes involve robbing people on the street.

After midnight on Feb. 5, a man smoking outside the Stadium Inn, near the University of Denver, was robbed by two men. 7NEWS was told that the owner of the bar turned over surveillance video to police.

On Jan. 30, two robberies happened within 20 minutes; the first near an apartment complex on South Broadway just south of Interstate 25, and then in a residential area near Washington Street and Cedar Avenue.

One of the robberies in late January involved a woman being carjacked in the Highlands.
