21-year-old man arrested for felony menacing after girl held at gunpoint, police say

Denver Police said two juveniles were also taken into custody on assault charges.

DENVER — A young man and two juveniles are facing felony menacing and assault charges after an incident that led to a large police presence Tuesday morning.

Denver Police said it happened at a house party on West 25th Avenue, just west of Federal Boulevard.

According to a probable cause statement, the juvenile victim told a child interviewer at the Family Crisis Center that she was with her ex-boyfriend at the party. She got angry after refusing several sexual advances from a person whose name was redacted and started yelling, the document says.

The statement says Kevin Clark, 21, and two unnamed people tried to physically restrain her. She told police she was punched multiple times in the chest and mouth and that Clark pointed a camouflage-patterned gun at her, causing her to fear for her life. 

The victim said while Clark was pointing the gun at her, two other people tried to zip-tie her to a chair to "control her outburst."

The victim later picked Clark out from a photo lineup, according to the PC statement. 

Police said they saw Clark leaving the location on West 25th Avenue and detained him. Officers searched his backpack and found a black and blue camouflage gun loaded with 23 bullets, the document says.

Clark and two juvenile males were taken into custody, Denver Police said.

Clark was being held on suspicion of felony menacing, according to police. The other two suspects were being held on suspicion of assault. Police said the Denver District Attorney's Office would make the final determination of possible charges.

Police originally described the incident as a kidnapping. It led to a shelter-in-place order in the area.
