“Crazy” guy accosts man at Denver ATM machine 02/26/17

02/26/17 Denver, CO – Around 2PM today Denver police were dispatched to what initially came in as a robbery in-progress near the intersection of S. Colorado Blvd. and E. Mexico Ave.  Upon arrival District 3 cops found a man pinned to the ground by at least one other man near an ATM machine and the officers had to sort out the scene.  According to a man at the scene named “Mark” here’s what transpired: Mark was trying to use the ATM at the Chase bank when a man who was acting what he described as “crazy” approached him and asked for money.  When Mark refused the request, the man became aggressive and held up both of his hands in fists as if to start a fight and he asked again for money.  That’s when Mark decided enough was enough and he took the “crazy acting” guy to the ground and pinned him there until the DPD cavalry arrived.  Mark was uninjured in the incident but the “crazy guy” did receive a scratch on his head during the scuffle and he subsequently took an ambulance ride to the hospital.  I talked with Mark after the excitement as he once again used the ATM to finish the deposit he had been trying to make in the first place. He seemed unfazed by the whole Pro Wrestling ordeal as he wandered away with his ATM deposit receipt in hand.  Shane Anthony reporting ColoradoNews1.com

DPD Air-1 and other agencies nail armed suspect in Arvada 02/17/17

02/17/17 Arvada, CO – For the second night in a row a long nighttime airborne surveillance by Denver police helicopter unit “Air-1” has nabbed a dangerous criminal suspect.  This time the operation began in Denver District 4 with a sharp-eyed patrol cop calling in a description of a wanted green GMC Envoy which he had spotted.  The car had been “BOLO’d” (Be-On-The-Look-Out) the day before for previously running from the Denver cops.  Once again, (just as was the case last night), the cops on the ground and Air-1 showed great patience, restraint and determination as they shadowed the dangerous suspect vehicle around west Denver, downtown, Lakewood, Wheat Ridge and finally into Arvada.  The surveillance which had started around 11:45PM ended just over an hour later  at 12:53AM when the suspect exited his car and reportedly urinated in the parking lot of an apartment complex located in the 6400 block of Welch Court in Arvada.  Multiple ground troops from Denver, Arvada and other agencies rushed in to pounce (like a cat on a mouse) on the unsuspecting driver.  The man then briefly ran from the cops, tossing a gun to the side, and was quickly taken into police custody without further incident.  The gun was recovered by the officers at the scene and several passengers in his car were detained as well.  FYI criminals, you can run from “Air-1” but its pretty darned tough to hide!  Great work again Air-1 and all officers concerned!  Also kudos to all the 911 dispatchers who helped coordinate tonight’s apprehension.  Shane Anthony reporting ColoradoNews1.com
