One of two suspects wanted for attacking 70-year-old woman outside Wal-Mart arrested
DENVER — The Denver Police Department said Wednesday it has arrested one of two men accused of attacking and robbing a 70-year-old woman in a Stapleton neighborhood Wal-Mart parking lot.
The woman had just cashed her tax refund check Tuesday when police say one of the suspects hit her in the face several times and took the cash from her hand. That man and a second man driving a black SUV fled from the scene, police said.
According to a news release, a Denver police officer recognized one of the suspects on the Crime Alert bulletin as a team manager with the Police Activities League.
That suspect was identified as 39-year-old Jesse Giron. He was being held Wednesday night for investigation in the attack and robbery.
Lenny Esquibel, 39, pictured on the left in the red hat, remained at large.
Anyone with information about the robbery or the suspects are asked to call Crime Stoppers at 720-913-7867.
