Englewood police report.


Bank robbery

A man got away with an unknown amount of cash about 1 p.m. May 13 when he robbed the Bank of the West at 4301 S. Broadway.

According to a police report, the man in his mid-20s handed the teller a note that said “This is a robbery” and demanded cash.

The teller followed his instructions and he ran out of the bank with the money. A customer reported seeing the suspect running south on Broadway.

The robber is described as a white man with a tan complexion. He was wearing a ball cap, baggy white polo shirt with a white thermal long sleeve shirt underneath, and baggy blue jeans.

Englewood detectives and FBI agents answered the robbery call. They searched the area but didn’t find anyone matching the suspect’s description.

The investigation continues.

Intruder caught

Police eventually arrested a 31-year-old man who reportedly had gone uninvited into a man’s home.

The police were called about 2:45 a.m. May 17 by an Englewood resident who said a stranger had come into his house.

The victim told police he was asleep in the front room of his house in the 3800 block of South Huron Street when he heard the front door open and saw a man he had not seen before was coming in.

According to the police report, the victim grabbed his gun and confronted the intruder, who left the house.

Officer searched the area and found a 31-year-old man who matched the description of the intruder.

The report said the suspect appeared to be intoxicated and told officers he did not remember going into anyone’s house.

The victim identified the suspect, so the 31-year-old was arrested and taken to the Arapahoe County jail. He could face charges of first-degree trespassing.
