DENVER (CBS4) – Police are asking for the public’s help tracking down a large group of violent teenagers.

They say 10 to 15 young people — described as black or Hispanic and both male and female — attacked four white men on the 16th Street Mall at about 10:45 p.m. on Sunday.

Denver police say the men were standing on the mall near Arapahoe when they were approached by the group. After a conversation, the group turned violent and they attacked the men.

Two of the four victims left the scene before they could be questioned. The Denver Post reported that two of the victims suffered minor injuries.

“It’s really unclear as to what their motivation was — why such a large group of young people came together and assaulted these individuals,” said Denver police spokesman Sonny Jackson.

Authorities say the attacks could have been gang related or racially motivated.

“We’re not going to dismiss anything in this case because we don’t know,” Jackson told CBS4.

In 2009 a similar series of attacks took place near downtown, on the 16th Street Mall and in surrounding areas. The victims were usually white or Hispanic and the suspects were black. Surveillance video captured one of the attacks on camera.

Many of those arrested in connection with the assaults were known to have ties with street gangs. Police said some or all of those attacks may have a kind of gang initation.

Police will confirm that in this weekend’s case the victims were not robbed, which narrows down the list of motives somewhat.

Police are asking anyone who has more information about the attacks, including the two victims who walked off, to come forward. They also want to interview anyone who witnessed the attack.

There is a $2,000 Crimestoppers reward for information that helps solve the case.

    I have seen a lot of useful issues on your web site about desktops. However, I’ve got the impression that lap tops are still less than powerful enough to be a wise decision if you normally do tasks that require many power, such as video enhancing. But for net surfing, statement processing, and majority of other prevalent computer functions they are fine, provided you don’t mind small screen size. Appreciate sharing your notions.

  19. ZZ says:

    Motive unclear? Give me a break. Wake up, white people. The government isn’t going to protect you.

  20. dooinok says:

    The police need to get a handle on this….and fast. They need to tail larger groups of people to prevent this c*rap from happening. People ask why this is happening….all over the country. Values have changed for many in this generation. Inflicting “pain for fun” is the norm for many. Police better get a handle on this for sure.

  21. tc says:

    I’m just waiting for the links to all these “gang of white youths attack black people” stories that have been mentioned in these comments. More than a few people spouting off about it happening, but not one link.

  22. Soul Leister says:

    This repeating pattern of minority group violence is easily solved in a civilized manner by doing what all countries/people have done when order discipline are threatened… like wild dogs, hunt the offenders down and, well, ensure none of them will ever become “repeat offenders”… disencentivize their anti social “herd” mentality.

    When they hung horse theives (back in the day… insert plethora of means used throughout time around the world…), they only had to do it once, or twice, and any would be horse theives stopped frequenting the area (unless, of course, they wanted a good neck stretching)… there will certainly be markedly fewer repeat offenders. Yee-ha.

  23. killerbee says:

    They ALWAYS forget the part where the CONQUERING Black TRIBES SOLD the losing tribes to the evil white man. They didn’t have CRACK back then.

  24. John says:

    I was lookng for the pairing of the words “hate” and “crime” in the article. Did I miss them or is it accepted that only whites are racist?

  25. Bryan says:

    What are they talking about “the motive was unclear”???

    It couldn’t be any more clear. There are violent black and hispanic gangs in Colorado, and they hate white people.

    To the cops in Denver. You have my permission to blow these kids’ brains out. Don’t worry about what color they are. Kill them.

  26. isnrblog says:

    All ths race baiting. Is someone trying to spark a race war? I have never thought that the black experiment ould work in the US and would end in violence. So if blacks ar approx 14% of the population, thats about 7 to 1. Good luck n1ggers.

  27. Daniel says:

    And some people wonder why I never leave the house without my handgun!!!

  28. JSR says:

    All you people are f-ing idiots.

    Use some rationality. 1: we live in America where minorities and low income families usually p happen to be dark skinned so they fall into the almost always true category of committing more crimes.
    2: what is better? An “honest crime” like beating a guy in the face, or a dishonest crime like sitting in your office in a suit (white guy) and scamming millions of people out of mortgages or healthy energy or any other crimes rich white dudes commit from afar?
    3: Read Guns Germs and Steal and then go suck on your thumb for eternity

    1. Bryan says:

      Better yet, let’s make it legal for black and hispanic gang members to beat up whites who never did anything to them.

      That would solve the problem.

  29. ByteRider says:

    Sadly, folks, this is the beginning of the end. Remember what Bloomberg said last week– riots in the streets. The kids are in a low income demograph [by their description] so they are “reach out” first. If you guys pay attention to the news like I do, you see a lot of this going on in several cities and even “flash mobs” in stores and on the streets [violent flash mobs, that is].

    Expect to see this increase exponentially over the next 6 months. We are in a dangerous time, but this will– I believe — lead to another civil war. I know that sounds rediculous… whaddathunk… right? Well, when was the last time you seen mobs like this? Oh… let me refresh your member… it was during the civil war. Look it up.

    Gerald Celente also predicted this would happen. Google ’em.

  30. CRACKERa$$CRACKERS says:

    Poor white people, Boo HOO

    1. ByteRider says:

      No… we’re typically well to do, not poor, because we value education and hard work.

      Care to another another genius comment?

  31. Johnny B. Good says:

    Can’t we all just get along now?

  32. Zemindar says:

    If it were the other way around it would be on the national news and they would be calling it a “horrible hate crime”

  33. Frank says:


    “Motive UNCLEAR”???

    HAHAHAHAHAHA! The motive was anti-white racism.

  34. Knightflyer says:

    Can you say HAYE CRIME .Wait,my mistake ,It is only a hate crime if a white attacks a MINORITY.Arm up White America !

  35. Doberman says:

    When punks start running in packs, it’s time to start ‘packing’! (
    and I do NOT mean move away!)

  36. Max says:

    Could it be that the four whites were attack simply because they ARE white? Hmmm…

  37. SockRayBlue says:

    I moved out of that place just around the same time for the same reasons. Twelve years as an Adams County deputy and glad to put it all behind me having watched the devolution of mankind.

  38. klg1956 says:

    We can only hope it was Robert Redford and Maurice Strong that were beat senseless….maybe that would knock some sense into those progressives that think they know everything….give, give, give and then they feel entitled to take and with a radical in the big house, the really are feeling their oats!

  39. Kiba says:

    Where in the hell are my other comments? Why do I have to type and comment on here for nothing? None of mine were any worse than many others. What gives? Are you profiling me or something?

  40. Taylor says:

    All people can do bad, but more Blacks do bad than anyone else.
    That’s not racist. It’s the truth.
    None of these people were Slaves. They are taught this by their parent and teachers. Doesn’t CO. have CCW laws? They need them.

  41. LaQunita Inn D'Jones Laquisha says:

    This is clearly a case of white not being where they should. I be they were rich and spending money and opressing people.

  42. Ghostsouls says:

    Why the hell is it, that only BLACK people can have hate crimes committed against them, huh, Eric “My People” Holder??? This is a hate crime as defined by law. 2 other races singled out WHITE MEN, not Hispanic, not Asian, not Filipino, not Mexican, WHITE. If a gang of white kids beat up black men, you would see a race baiter on every corner shouting RACISTS! The law must be EQUAL, I think it was someone like Martin Luther King, Jr. that said this…..

  43. Marshall strong says:

    I have read these comments and many others, one thing is clear. The White Man has had enough. It is time for the White Caucus, if for no other reason to focus on & bring more attention to Black on White Crime. I am with you my Brothers & Oh yeah, like you, I have been stocking up. The South is full of Snipers, we learn it young. 1,000 ft away can be very touchable.

  44. nhlfoda says:

    Wow, a gang of black youth in trouble and no news conference with Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson?!! What is the world coming to……

  45. again12345 says:

    …they(the mexicans and blacks) did not robbed the victims, they just administered them a betting, a reminder to all the white Americans who is in charge. Well, I think federal laws are made to prosecute people for racism.O!… but wait the victims were all white, so no racism here. Thank you “al sharpton, jackson , la raza ,aclu, and other well intended group of jerks.”

  46. Armed to the teeth says:

    If you are white, the FBI stats show you are about 95% likely to be attacked by non-white minorities. The facts show if you’re white and un-arrmed, this is what happens. But hey, these are the “poor underprivileged youth” that Obama says is the future of America. So your choice is take your beatings you white devils (what Obama calls us in church), or fight back against Obama’s children of the future. If you’re attacked by Obama Hussein’s kids and you voted for him, you got what you deserve. So just take your beating/rape/robberies/murder quietly and give him your vote. Welcome to Obama Hussein’s new Amerika!

  47. Jewfromhell says:

    Don’t worry, Eric Holder says that they were black panthers so it’s all Otay!
