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.
