September 23, 2020 — Golden Police need your help to identify three suspects who robbed a convenience store and held a clerk hostage at gunpoint. At about 2:26 a.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 15, Golden Police responded to an alarm at the Circle K at 17691 West Colfax Ave.
Three suspects entered the store at about 2:20 a.m., all wearing masks. The males were armed with handguns. One suspect went behind the counter and held a gun to the employee’s neck while the other two stood at the counter with their guns pointed at the employee.
After the suspects collected the money in the register, they physically shoved the employee at gun point into a back room where they robbed the employee of personal belongings. Suspects took a box of Twix bars, two cartons of cigars, and $72.51 in cash and change. The heinous nature of this crime is not as much about what they stole, but how they victimized the employee.
Based on witness statements and the security video, these are the suspects’ descriptions (see images from security footage below):
Suspect #1: Black male, 6 ft. tall, wearing a black beanie, white and black masks, a black Adidas jacket, blue jeans, white shoes and a black glove on his left hand, and armed with a black snub nose revolver.
Suspect #2: Black male, wearing a black hoodie, gray face covering, gray pants, gray shoes, black gloves, and armed with a handgun.
Suspect #3: Black male, wearing a gray beanie, blue hoodie, white face mask, black pants and black shoes, and armed with black semi-automatic handgun.
Police also obtained surveillance video from a home located in the Golden Terrace neighborhood directly behind the Circle K. The video shows the three suspects, and possibly a fourth suspect who was driving the car. The three suspected robbers are dropped off at this location and the driver then backs up and leaves the area. The car is a dark-colored 4-door sedan.

Golden, Colorado is rich with culture, outdoor activities, scenic beauty, thriving businesses, and friendly people, but the City’s origins are largely thanks to another valuable resource – gold. A small amount of gold discovered in Clear Creek attracted the area’s earliest settlers in the mid-19th century and Golden City quickly became an important supply stop for gold miners seeking their fortunes in the adjacent mountains. Farmers soon discovered the rich soil in the valley that is now home to the Coors complex, and Golden City further swelled as coal mining and clay extraction industries settled in the area, utilizing the region’s ample natural resources. Golden City became the capital of the federally recognized Colorado Territory in 1862, and the territorial legislature met from 1862 to 1867 in the building that is now home to the Old Capitol Grill restaurant. By the end of the 1860s, Golden City had been elected the seat of Jefferson County and the capital of the provisional Jefferson Territory. Locals were outraged when neighboring Denver snagged the honor of becoming capital of the newly formed state in 1876, but the loss of name distinction did nothing to dampen Golden’s vital growth – business was booming. Today, with the official name of City of Golden, the town continues to thrive. It offers residents and visitors an abundance of recreational, cultural and culinary opportunities. Come live, work and play with us in our modern town with an old west flair.
