Robert Bemoras, man accused of punching, swinging hammer at Denver police officer, formally charged

DENVER - Denver prosecutors said they have formally charged a man accused of attacking a police officer with a deadly weapon.

Robert Bemoras, 50, is charged with attempted first-degree assault on a peace officer, menacing and three counts of third-degree assault on a peace officer, according to the Denver District Attorney's Office.

Bemoras is accused of causing a disturbance at a grocery store on July 11, at 1111 S. Washington St., and was contacted by the police and asked to leave the location.

Prosecutors said Bemoras became irate and pointed a knife at the responding officer. The charges further allege that Bemoras dropped the knife, punched the officer in the face and pulled out a hammer and swung it at the officer. 

Bemoras remains in jail and is scheduled to appear in Denver County Courtroom on Wednesday for his second advisement on the charges.
