DENVER — A man turned himself into police Monday and told authorities he was the suspect involved in a robbery at a Broomfield Macy’s department store earlier in April.

Tyler Cane Nelson, 20, went to the Denver Police Department Monday to identify himself as the suspect in the burglary of a Macy’s department store at the Flatiron Crossings Mall in Broomfield on April 22, said DPD.

Shortly before 2 p.m. on April 22, an adult male and female entered the Macy’s at 11 W. Flatirons Crossing Dr. On-site loss-prevention employees reported observing the two steal merchandise from the store.

When one of the employees tried to stop the male suspect, now identified as Nelson, he assaulted the employee and then fled the store through the south doors leading out to the parking lot, said detectives.

After Nelson turned himself in, detectives from the Broomfield Police Department met with Denver PD to take custody of Nelson.

He was then transported to the Broomfield County Jail where he is currently being held on a $5,000 bond for robbery, theft without authorization or by threat or deception, and third-degree assault, said police.

Nelson is scheduled to appear in court May 2 at 1:30 p.m.

Broomfield police said the female suspect has yet to be identified and remains at large.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact police at 303-464-5750.
