Photos: See latest light-rail attack's three suspects, who stabbed rather than robbed

Big photos below.
Just yesterday, we told you about an armed robbery at an Arapahoe County light-rail station -- and suggested that the five wanted suspects (to see their photos, click here) chose a stupid location for a crime, given all the cameras at such facilities. Now, however, we've learned about an attack at another light rail station. The suspects in that crime were caught on surveillance cams, too; see images below. But disturbingly, they seemed less interested in robbing the victimized couple than in hurting them. And they did.

Just before 2 a.m. on Monday, June 17, according to the Lakewood Police Department, officers were dispatched to the area of 13th Avenue and Lamar Street, summoned by a husband and wife who'd walked to a nearby West Metro Fire Station after being assaulted.

The Lamar light-rail station.
The man had been pepper sprayed. The woman had been stabbed from behind in the neck/shoulder area.

What happened? The pair are said to have been approached by three males who asked them for a cigarette. They reacted by trying to walk away, at which point the knife and the aerosol canister came out.

An LPD rep emphasizes that the men didn't demand any money or goodies. They just stabbed and sprayed -- and then split.

Police have released a series of images from the station showing the suspects. Here's the first....

The suspects are described as Hispanic males in the seventeen-eighteen-year age range. Their heights and weights are estimated at five-six to five-eleven and 140-190 pounds, respectively. One suspect had dark hair and was wearing a long-sleeved red shirt, dark pants and light-colored shoes. Another sported a black shirt, a hoodie with short or rolled-up sleeves, tan pants and a backpack. The couple couldn't recall what the third person had been wearing.

If you recognize or have any information about this trio, you're encouraged to phone Detective Bryan Felk at 303-987-7536.

Don't worry, it won't belong until we get another Bernhard Goetz to handle some of these little bitches. Then it'll be the shooter's fault of course. Trying to think of the last time someone was shot in self-defense in the news... We don't need guns. We need affordable jacker, bulletproof cars.

IF Denver was not such an unconstitutional city/county it would be a little easier co carry even with a LEGAL CC license.

It might be a good idea to start packing a piece, and hanging out at the stations late at night and pull a little surprise on these punks if they are around.

What I don't understand is why do security cameras have such shitty picture quality? Yo get better from a cell phone camera. Maybe the digital camera makers should start making security cameras that have a high enough resolution that you can get a good picture of these spineless sissy ass LOSERS. Then maybe the public can start hunting their asses down and do a little JUSTICE to them out on the streets.

So what exactly relieves RTD of liability? If you can't go after them for negligence due to no inherent assumption of safety, you go after them for false advertising wherein they have made a blatant claim to safety.

Do not worry about that guy he is just ignorant. YES this state is turning into shit ass areas just like he described. And yes other than Chicago South side I have been to all of those as well as worse parts of NY before you pipe up!

Not really as long as the victims shit and piss themselves to avoid the assault.

Umm...hate to say it, but if RTD was responsible for all of their riders safety they (and any other metropolitan transportation) would go bankrupt. Having security at every bus stop and light rail station makes no sense. RTD has no liability, hence victims have no suit. It's horrible and I hope that these pu$$ies are found. Be careful out there folks.

The victims will sue and either RTD will up security or go bankrupt. Either way it's a win-win.

It really sucks when RTD builds projects like this and forgets the main thing and that is the safety of the people that uses there buses and trains to communicate...... RTD needs to step up there procedures on the safety/welfare of their customers.....

Punks such as these are worthless mongrels destined for a life of welfare and jail cells. Hang them now. It'll save us in the long run. They're nothing but streetlight decorations.

@Sean Miller Because it's their job. Aurora is in Douglas, Adams and Arapahoe County, why the hell wouldn't the sheriff be involved?
