On Saturday, August 28, 2021, at approximately 7:20 p.m., Brighton police officers were dispatched to the area of Bromley Lane and Fulton Ave regarding an armed carjacking. The victim reported being stopped at the traffic light when a young male approached his vehicle and asked him for a cigarette. The suspect produced a handgun demanding the victim to get out of his car. The victim ignored the suspect, and the male suspect fired a round into the air. No one was struck or injured. The victim exited his vehicle, and the male suspect, along with another male and female, got into the car and fled the scene in the victim’s vehicle westbound on Bromley Lane.
The only descriptions we have of the suspects involved in this case are two males and one female in their late teens or early twenties. The suspects were seen on bicycles before the robbery and are described as either White or Hispanic.
The victim’s vehicle (2015 Nissan Altima) was later recovered in Denver, unoccupied. The police department asks anyone with information to contact the Brighton Police Department tip line at (303) 655-8740.
