Police warn of multiple, random attacks in downtown Denver early New Year's Day (article and video)

DENVER - Police are warning the public after three separate, random attacks occurred within 45 minutes in downtown Denver early New Year's Day.

Police said a total of four people were assaulted. In each incident, the victims were knocked down or knocked out by groups of black males, police said.

One victim described a blitz attack where the assailants appeared out of nowhere, striking without warning.

"It was just like that," Nick Lloyd told 7NEWS reporter Molly Hendrickson. "I didn't see anybody. I didn't hear anything. Nobody said anything to me."

Lloyd said he was waiting for a ride with a friend near 20th and Market streets when they were both punched in the face. The blow fractured his face in several places and broke his jaw on both sides.

"Basically my whole cheek is caved in," he said, pointing to his swollen and bruised face.

Denver police said it's one of three attacks that happened downtown between 1:30 a.m. and 2:15 a.m. following New Year's Eve celebrations. The assaults happened at 20th and Larimer streets, 20th and Market streets and in the 1600 block of Blake Street.

"All we have is assaults by black males, so we need more details. That's why we're asking for the community's help," said Denver Police Department Sonny Jackson.

Jackson said they're looking into whether the cases are connected. He said it could be part of an infamous phenomenon known as the "knockout game," that has happened in other cities around the nation.

YouTube videos from across the country show teenagers attacking people at random, trying to knock them out with one punch.

"It very well could be," Jackson said, when asked if the Denver attacks involved the "knockout game." "We're going to look into that. It concerns us greatly if it is." Jackson said.

For Nick Lloyd, who will undergo surgery on Friday to put plates in his face and wire his jaw shut, this is no game at all.

"I don't think it's a game, personally being on this end of it," Lloyd said. "All I can hope for is that they catch the guys that did it and you know, they get what they deserve," Lloyd said.

Police ask anyone who witnessed the attacks or who has other information about the crimes to call Crime Stoppers at 720-913-STOP (7867). Callers can remain anonymous and could be eligible for a reward of up to $2,000.

The Left has been breeding an Army of feral blacks and Hispanics for almost 5 decades now. This has been a deliberate and constant strategy.

I'm sure they're looking (but, only that)
so many, too many "ferals" out there.

Small correction.

Despite liberal denials, there’s no denying the catastrophic levels of black crime. Sanity would involve harshly punishing ferals caught assaulting innocent people and restricting the movements of black youths around civilized people. Enough is enough.

If they were multiple, they weren’t random.

They’re gonna pick the wrong victim and get shot dead one of these days.

Let the media, the race-baiters and the liberals howl.

Isn't this warning a little late? It's the 7th where I live.

It is Black Ku Klux Klan racism to deny the racist element of the Knockout Game

Every black who participates in Knockout Game should be prosecuted for Hate Crimes

This is one of the reasons I don’t go to Denver. Last time I went was a tea party rally 3 years ago.

Denver USED TO BE a nice place to visit and to live, not so today as the street rats have taken over and these incidents are showing just that. I would certainly like to see “open carry” in all of the street rat infested, cesspool cities. Sooner or later the “rats” are going to start understanding the consequence of playing their stupid game as their “bro’s” lay dead or dying in the streets.

My wife had to go to Denver last week. I happened to have the day off so I escorted her - along with my little friend from Austria and thirty of his close personal friends, though they are somewhat “hollow....” I don’t play the knockout game, my game has a somewhat more permanent outcome.

While the major media have failed to cover this phenomenon of ethnic diversity, it may be that they were right.

It may be an unintended consequence of the publicity from the right, but it may be encouraging this ‘game’ among urban blacks who otherwise might not have heard of it as an acceptable ‘game’ on whitey.

I suspect it will continue until more game players run into folks with concealed carry permits.

I never walk in a sketchy area w/o carrying, and no one approaches me without my knowledge.

Pull this on me, they are in mortal danger. I'm too old for this b.s.

Yeah, it's 'random'.

Later in the article, they identify the assailants as black.

This is a race war.

He's too busy. He's prosecuting the sole white-on-black Knockout Game that has ever occurred.

That takes all his time.
