The driver, an 82-year-old man, was subsequently assaulted, police said. Authorities did not provide details on the extent of the man’s injuries.
Police said the group of five suspects fled the area after a short time because the driver’s car alarm was activated.
Investigators are planning on levying the felony charges of attempted robbery and assault on an at-risk adult against the suspects if they are apprehended, according to tweets.
Detectives are asking anyone with potential information related to this incident last month to call the Denver Metro Crime Stoppers at 720-913-7867. Tipsters can remain anonymous and be eligible for rewards up to $2,000.
