AURORA, Colo. (CBS4) – Deputies in Arapahoe County are trying to find the men captured on surveillance video who are responsible for robbing a man at gunpoint.
The crime happened on June 14 in the early morning at the Nine Mile High Rail Station in unincorporated Arapahoe County, near the intersection of South Peoria Street and South Parker Road.
In the video, one suspect is seen in the video pointing a gun at the victim.
The others then take his bag, wallet and cellphone after he gets turned around.
“The stress that comes along with a situation like this kind of dictates what our responses are. In this case they were armed. That’s a dangerous situation — one we would not want people to actively fight against,” said Arapahoe County Sheriff’s office Bureau Chief Vince Line.
Deputies say the victim did the right thing by not resisting or fighting back. He was not hurt but was shaken up afterwards.
The five men then drove off in a green and silver Dodge Ram truck with a green topper and severe oxidation of paint on the hood.
