NORTHGLENN, Colo. (KDVR) – Investigators are working to determine whether or not an attempted carjacking and a separate attempted robbery that both happened in Northglenn on Friday are connected.
In a statement from the Northglenn Police Department, officials said they received a report at roughly 6:35 p.m. on Friday regarding an ongoing felony menacing incident on the 11600 block of Community Center Drive.
The armed suspect, described as a Black man who was wearing dark clothing and a dark ski mask, was attempting to steal the victim’s car while holding them up at gunpoint.
