DENVER — Denver Police are asking for help identifying the suspects they say assaulted and robbed a man who was loading things into his car near an elementary school last Thursday. 

The victim was loading his gray Dodge Caravan near the Florida Pitt Waller School at 21604 East 51st Ave. around 7:20 p.m. on June 11, police said.

That is near Picadilly Road and East 56th Avenue in northeast Denver.

Three suspects in a dark green SUV approached the man, police said. They assaulted him, took money from his pocket and fled.

Police said the victim was seriously injured during the assault.
