Amazon delivery driver carjacked, suspect crashes in Edgewater

EDGEWATER, Colo. (KDVR) — A delivery driver was just trying to do his job on Sunday when a 43-year-old man allegedly decided to hijack the van the Amazon worker was working in.

The Edgewater Police Department said around 1:15 p.m. Sunday, a man believed to be a Denver resident threatened an Amazon delivery driver who worked along the 1800 block of Depew Street.

The suspect in question threatened to shoot the Amazon driver before taking control of his delivery vehicle. The suspect then drove a quarter mile from the scene with the Amazon worker still in the van. At that time, the suspect allegedly let the delivery driver out of the vehicle.

According to Edgewater PD, he continued to drive the stolen van before crashing it into three cars at the intersection of West 26th Avenue and Depew Street. The suspected carjacker then fled on foot but was quickly located and taken into custody.

The identity of the suspect is still unknown at this time but FOX31 will bring you those details as they become available. If you witnessed this crime or have information that may assist in the current case, please contact Edgewater Police Department investigators.
