Big photos below.
Update: Two high-profile crimes have taken place at metro-area light rail stations in recent days.

And while three suspects who stabbed and pepper sprayed a Lakewood couple that walked away after being asked for a cigarette remain at large right now, four out of five teens suspected of robbing a man with the assistance of a gun at an Arapahoe County station are currently in custody -- and the multitude of surveillance cameras at such facilities is a big reason why they were nabbed so promptly.

As we noted in our original coverage, on view below, images of the five were captured just shy of 6 a.m. at the 9 Mile Station on South Parker Road.

Here's a larger look at the quintet entering one section of the station:

After robbing the victim in the parking garage area of the station and splitting, the Arapahoe County Sheriff's Office issued stills and video footage of the group and asked for the public's assistance in bringing them to justice -- and they got it.

According to the ACSO, four of the five suspects were taken into custody. Their names haven't been released due to their ages; they've been identified only as four juvenile males.

Each has been charged with aggravated robbery, a class 3 felony. They were also gifted with a $50,000 bond.

The fifth suspect identified by police is an adult. However, further info about him is being withheld due to the ongoing investigation.

In the meantime, Undersheriff David Walcher issued the following statement about the busts to date: "Due to the cooperation of Crime Stoppers and our law enforcement partners, the Arapahoe County Sheriff's Office made these arrests very quickly and will continue to attempt to apprehend the fifth suspect as soon as possible."

Maybe attempting a stick-up in an area with as many cameras as some TV studios wasn't such a brilliant idea after all. Here's a 9News clip about the arrests, followed by our previous coverage.

Continue for our previous coverage of the armed robbery at the Arapahoe County light rail station, including photos and video.

Aggravated robbery is only a class 3 felony? I thought robbing someone with a gun was a class 1.

Hmm. I just can't figure out why black males get stereotyped as such and why when a white person sees a group of black males they cross over to the other side of the street....now where would white people get such notions about black males?

The problem is that this arrest, if convicted, will derail their planned entrance into medical school afterwhich they planned to join the medical profession in service of their fellow man as part of Obamacare.

Racist comments?? They're worthless punks. They pointed a firearm at a man and robbed him. Calling them mongrels was the least offensive comment I could make. It's what they are. Nothing to do with race. I'd hang a white punk too.

If you are going to post moronic, racist comments, at least you are doing it right? (smh)

It's a shame that the victim wasn't able to put these mongrels down at the time. I'd sure rather have read of their funerals than the wrist slap they'll receive from the courts. They'll always be punks.

No surprise it was a bunch of racist whites. They are animals that have no place in civilized society. They need to be put down like rabid dogs.

@Alex Sparks  Right, just like gynocentrists aren't sexists...they just don't like men.  You are making men look stupid Alex.  With stupid men like you it makes sense that men make up an overwhelming majority of the prison population.

@Juan_Leg ... or the crappy unusable video that most BANKS still use today.

It's almost as if they don't want to identify and catch the perps.

@Jay Jurgens Take a look at Detroit. Hint, it isn't the loss of the auto industry that has destroyed Detroit. It looks in many places like a bombed out third world city. They can't even keep the street lights on in places, police openly tell people it is not safe to go to certain areas, and much of it is ready to be plowed under and returned to nature. Amazing, what with such an enterprising and industrious population as they have.
