Suspected assault brings deputies to west Centennial block

Suspect arrested after authorities arrive on South Gaylord Street near SouthGlenn


An active police scene in an assault investigation in a west Centennial neighborhood prompted the Arapahoe County Sheriff's Office to ask civilians to avoid the immediate area the morning of April 9.

A male suspect was detained in the 7100 block of South Gaylord Street, just south of The Streets at SouthGlenn outdoor mall, according to Ginger Delgado, sheriff's office spokeswoman.

“The community is not in danger; however, we're asking citizens to please stay out of the immediate area,” a sheriff's office tweet said at about 9:10 a.m.

Soon after, the suspect was taken into custody, and the sheriff's office lifted a shelter-in-place order, a tweet from the office said about 20 minutes later. He ultimately was arrested.

The suspected assault did not occur that day, Delgado said.

"He had an extensive criminal history," Delgado added. "There was a warrant for his arrest."

No one was injured in the April 9 actions that resulted in the suspect being arrested. 

The sheriff's office did not say whether the suspect had a weapon on April 9 or whether he was known to the alleged victim.

The office did not release further details.
